Nope, the film wasn't set when he was in office either.
So ... was it set BEFORE he took office? Because he died in office, of course ...  ???

Maybe it was a bad idea to let Matt go ahead.
JK Matt ;)

KC, do you think it couldv'e been set before his office terms. I'm sure before that he wasn't really publicly known or famous.

No, it was set after he died.

I'm heading out for the night, so I'll see if I can give a clue that will lead to the answer and move this thread along...  his image is on a prop that would be visible to you if you held the prop, but the audience can't see the image, only the prop. But the prop is part of the storyline, so it's not too far out there.

I got it, Matt!


It's the image of FDR on the DIME that Miss Lilly (in Bronco Billy) wants so she can call her stepmother back in good old New York!

I was waiting up for you.... I knew you'd get it!

I guess that was a bit unusual for this thread, but it works... and it had you scratching your heads all night. That's hard to do to KC in trivia.  ;)

You're up, KC!

No, just that KC knows that I do Bronco Billy trivia about as often as she does Unforgiven trivia. That made it a little easier on her.  ;)

OK, while we're on FDR ... name the three Eastwood films that are set during his administration. That should be easier than yours, Matt!  ;)

Yes to Where Eagles Dare and Kelly's Heroes ... both of Eastwood's World War II-themed movies take place during Roosevelt's administration.

As for City Heat, it squeaks in under the wire ... it's set in 1933 (the first year of FDR's administration), according to the press kit ... but plainly before the end of Prohibition, on December 5, 1933.

However, I had another picture in mind ... one set more squarely, and more obviously, in the Great Depression of the thirties. Anyone?  ??? ;)

Not distorted ... just a little "pixelated." ;) Your original cap must have been too small to stand up to that kind of enlargement. Mine was over 800 pixels (full width of the image) before I selected that detail, then enlarged it slightly.

Let's see ... a new president. How about another easy one ... not mentioned in the dialogue, but his name is seen onscreen:



James A. Garfield
