I figured out why why DJ loves this movie so much: It's not that he loves seeing Lancaster or Scofield or trains or explosions - it's that he loves seeing Jeanne Moreau's hairy armpits  Evil
Why must these things be mutually exclusive? The film boasts a lot of positives: Lancaster, Scofield, Frankenheimer's direction, real explosions, real trains being de-railed . . . AND Jeanne Moreau's real hairy armpits. So many things to enjoy.  Afro


That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

Is Moreau's real voice being used?

Some of the dubbing is awful, particularly Albert Remy's. I guess that if Lancaster is supposed to be French but speaking English with mo French accent, it wouldn't make sense to have Remy's charcater speak with a French accent. Still, knowing how Remy sounds in real life, the dub was so bad. In my opinion, if they're dubbing French actors into Emglish, they should use unknown actors. Remy is an actor we've all seen before and know what he sounds like.

Most importantly,  it sounds like they used direct sound with Lancaster for not with the Frenchman the Frenchmen who were dubbed to English. So Lancaster's audio sounds like it is in a different "track" (no pun intended) than Remy's. Ugh. IMO, in each scene, the audio should sound like it is coming from the same source. If there is a scene in which Lancaster and Remy are talking and they are post-dubbing Remy's dialogue, they should also post-dub Lancaster's rather than using direct sound. That way, it it would at least sound like they are in the same room and they are talking to each other. That's what happened in Leone's movies - ALL characters' dialogue is post-dubbed, so whether it is Eastwood using his real voice or Volonte's dialogue being spoken by an English-speaking voice actor, the characters always sound like they are in the same room.


There are three types of people in the world, my friend: those who can add, and those who can't.
