Mmm... and I like talking to a man who likes classic films enough to remember their quotes.

By gad, sir! Why, they sent him a jewel-encrusted falcon (otherwise known as the Dingus, the Black Bird, the stuff dreams are made of)."



Also sometimes known as... The Maltese Falcon!


Good answer, CineSage... Your turn at bat!

> There never has been a Pope Pius XIII...


Au contraire, Mr. Sage . . . there is a Pope Pius XIII, who is the head of a splinter group of Catholics called the True Catholic Church. I think he lives (if he is still alive) in Washington state.


However, unless they've made a movie about his papacy, I'm still in the dark on this one.


"The Pope of Greenwich Village?"

Judith is right. There IS (or was) a Pope Pius XIII, the Holy Father of what they call the TRUE Catholic Church... and yes, they are (or were) headquartered in Washington State.


However: The movie we are all searching for has nothing to do with that pope. The film in question contains a fictional character called Pope Pius XIII, and from all appearances, he is the head of the Roman Catholic Church. But remember, he's fictional. He's a character in the movie.


Okay, here's another clue for you: Esme.
