Didn't see mention of which city. Silent movie. I wonder how close it is to the novel.

I think I might have lost you, I sure didn't say much so I certainly can't blame anyone but myself.

I was taking a jab at the clown-show that is Washington DC, and saying that the first thing that came to mind when I read the title of the movie was Washington DC and all the surrounding/involved shenanigans.

Sorry for being obviously too vague.

Ah. I thought you came across the title, assumed it was about D.C., then posted.

The key was "beautiful." Ain't nuthin' byootaful 'bout dat city!
