Boston is now known for becoming the location of major films. Does the city matter? Imagine this scenario from Outstanding Lateral Thinking Puzzles by Paul Sloane and Des McHale:

” A famous director came to Ireland to make a film. Many local people thought that they would be able to get jobs as extras. They were surprised at the criteria the director had for selecting local extras. What was he looking for?

– The director was making a movie about World War II.

– He wanted extras for the battle scenes.

– The movie was Saving Private Ryan.”
