    I can only think of Pompeii but that sounds too easy...

  2. Besides Pompeii is to the southeast unless I am being to literal. I haven't a clue either.

  3. I'm going to guess "Gran Torino" because at least it sounds Italian.

    It was interesting to see some of the people and creatures, particularly creatures, he has played opposite in his movies starting literally with THE Creature in "Revenge of the Creature" (1955). In his next movie he played opposite a talking mule in "Francis in the Navy" (1955). He was on a roll in 1955 playing a jet fighter pilot fighting off 100 foot spiders in "Tarantula"

    He had further bit parts in a number of movies until he hit it big with his spaghetti westerns directed by Sergio Leone.

    In 1971 he became "Dirty Harry" and made my day, but in 1978 co-stared with a chimp in "Every Which Way But Loose".

    The last movie of his that I have seen is "Space Cowboys" 2000. He turned me off when he talked to an empty chair in 2012 at the Republican convention.
