BTW, if you want to see -- that is, hear -- an example of Hollywood southern

dialects run amok, check out the movie _The Chase_ at your local video store

(Not an easy item to find, but it is out there). It had an extraordinary

cast (Marlon Brando, Robert Redford, Jane Fonda, James Fox ... and Miriam

Hopkins!), and everybody seems to have made up his or her own version of a

southern accent.
