Talk:People Will Talk
- It'd really really really REALLY help if there were citations for anyone saying or suggesting that such a thought process occured somewhere. SophieWilder 18:22, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
- - this film might make someone think he's an alternative therapist of some sort.
- - "he seems to be an effective physician who actually helps people, so it can’t be that he’s some kind of quack “healer” dealing in alternative medicine."
- - Some bloke in some comments section misremembered the character or got the name mixed up with somebody else.
Overlooked Ethical Violation
No one at Praetorius' hearing seems to care that he has broken the law, in a very serious manner: harboring a fugitive (Mr. Shunderson) who the Canadian authorities believe to be dead (he'd been sentenced to death for murder, but survived being hanged, waking up when Praetorius, a young medical student, was about to dissect his body afterward). This may not be a medical ethics violation per se, and Shunderson doesn't seem to be dangerous, but even so, it seems odd that his bete noire Erwell, who brought the charges, doesn't seize on this immediately, rather than merely sit meekly and say nothing while the board ignores the revelation, letting Praetorius go. For a message which is clearly referencing the McCarthyism of the day, it would do better not to have a persecuted figure who hadn't actually done something that should legitimately be investigated.

- It's worth pointing out at this stage that we are dealing with a work of fiction. SophieWilder 12:15, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
- Of course, but he was charged with ethical violations, and clears himself by admitting to more serious ones? That seems to be a rather large plot hole. Mcc1789 (talk) 03:27, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
