TRUTH !!
Sister Joseph, a surgical assistant at Saint Mary's hospital in Rochester, Minn. had a knack for spotting malignant lumps on patients. On several occasions, she found a particular kind of lump in patient's navels that would turn out to be associated with cancer.
In 1949, ten years after her death, the condition was re-named from "pants-button umbilicus" to "Sister Joseph's Nodule" in her memory.

lucky, I will have to watch my DVD of #8 more closely. One of my favorite all-time moves, and yet I'm not sure I ever noticed these guys in it. Hard to take one's eyes off the young and virile Brando in that one.
