I've watched a lot of movies set in Seattle, and it's always hilarious how people can move around from place to place in the city almost instantly, or who by going north out of the city for 10 minutes can arrive at a mountain that's an hour southeast of her.

Hardly anything to get outraged about, it's pretty funny really.

good question. But then again, a lot of people wonder why disney does anything that disney does. A lot of time themouse does it because themouse can. Like hiring an officer of the QEII to "play" himself - but giving him a choice of shaving off a beard he had for decades - or not getting the contract.

"The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid", was a 1972 film depicting the last failed bank robbery by the Jessie James gang in Northfield, Minnesota, where I lived for 28 years. In addition to a highly fictionalized plot, it was filmed in Jacksonville, Oregon, with tall mountains in the background. There are no mountains in Minnesota! So I guess film makers can put mountains wherever they wish.

Maybe the apocalypse is envisaged as having moved the earth about a litle.

The real answer is that the Disney organisation is arrogant and pig-ignorant, but then that's hardly unusual in the business.

Actually Sakespeare's "sea-coast of Bohemia" isn't a similar cock-up. Frontiers move a lot more easily than mountains, and Bohemia did at one point stretch down to the sea. I think Trieste would have been Bohemian territory at one point.

I understand that they are making a film about the escapes from Colditz where all the escapees are American. There were only 5 Americans ever in Colditz and none at any time took part in any escape. Obviously facts have no part to play in films.

I seem to remember that Disney had Raccoons in the woods in England in one of his more recent cartoons.
Anyone remember "In an English country garden" by Jimmie Rodgers ... that had Bluebirds in it.

Orac, that'd be 101 Dalmatians. I think they were actually in the Glenn Close version rather than the original cartoon - may be wrong. Still pretty crap though.

Oh yes.. 101 Dalmations. I'm sure there was some other American native animal too probably a porcupine. I used to read the Dr Doolittle books when I was a kid... I don't remember him being black... or Robin Hood being American. Disney also seemed to think it was ok to have a family who had a mixure of different accents and it still be believable... remember Swiss family Robinson where the kids were all Americans and the parents English... very odd..

aint no mountains in Norfolk... tis as flat as a pancake...

I visited recently asking for directions, was told... go down the hill and turn left. Had big difficulty in noticing the hill, I'm used to gurt bigguns coming from Wales. Told them that's not a hill.... it's just a glitch in the landscape...

Do you reckon that other people's opinions of hill varies according to where they come from...

Sorry... I'm drifting off a bit...

Actually, Norfolk, Connecticut is in the hilly Northwestern corner of the state--the LItchfield Hills, some of which are called mountains (and which rise steeply 1,000 feet or so above the valleys beneath them). So there are mountains in that Norfolk.

We may not have mountains but the Cromer area had hail like I've never seen before yesterday - about the size of marbles and a good thunder strom to go with it!

Blew the power and the phone lines which were off for over 24hrs... unfortunately, my PC's power supply and motherboard were amongst the casualties and I'm limping along with bits I've cobbled together (and borrowed from my mum's PC) right now...
