Mr. Murchison

A River Runs Through It

Mr. Murchison is a minor character in A River Runs Through It who uses an ear trumpet for his left ear. Ear trumpets were an early form of hearing aids that were cone-shaped and provided amplification. In the film, he initially wasn’t using his ear trumpet and didn’t hear Mrs. Maclean explaining that it was Norman (to the right in the picture) who was with her and not Paul, her other son. After raising the ear trumpet to his ear, Mrs. Maclean spoke loudly into it to explain. It’s a comical moment in the film, but still rings true today with many people who don’t wear their hearing aids all the time until they can’t hear someone talking to them.
