Hi Chris:


Keeeeeripes! And I complain about Hollywood. Looks like you
definitely got your $2 worth.

Musicals drive me right out of the room, but I can see why you
had to rent this one. There must be a tremendous market still
for cinema in India.

I rented one about the birth of their modern independent nation.
One scene showed some Britisher carefully studying books and
tables.

After a while, he would put in a short segment of the new
boundaries between India and Pakistan on a large map. No, they
didn't portray him as a heavy. Not that I could see, just
somebody who carefully divided a huge territory in two or three,
from the comfort of his library.


Best wishes

- Larry
