Yes, and as you may know, there is a town called Wappinger Falls, New York, but in "It's A Gift", W.C. Fields and his family lived in the ficticious town of Wappinger Falls, New Jersey. Your thread, finance.

Is that the institution where Warren Beatty is a staffer and title character *Lilith* is a patient?

Is it the one in *One Flew Over The Cocoo's Nest* ?

Correct. I had some fun setting this one up:

(1) Turns out that in this context the term "spit" is used in the sense of a spur of land that juts out into a body of water. (Porpoise Spit is a coastal community.) That was not the first impression I got when I first ran across the term.

(2) A poster to the mivie's site commented that he got an image of a marine mammel roasting as it was turned over a fire. Well, that was not the first impression I got, either.

(3) I've lost track of this one, but I have read a comment by an Australian who visited the U.S. He met an American woman who comtemplated a visit Down Under. Wanted to know where Porpoise Spit was; wanted to visit the place. Puts me in mind of those tourists who go to Charleston, SC, and ask the tour guides to help them find Rhett Butler's grave.
