    According to the museum, if you mean the couple with their feet off the ground to the left of Dante, that’s Paolo (Malatesta) and Francesca (da Rimini), who were historical contemporaries of Dante. Shakespeare arrived centuries later.

    Yeah, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) only grossed $248M. I could give more examples; but why bother.

    To clarify the first, yes, I did think posting the blog pointer would put me in violation of the Comment Policy; but, diskus left a reply pointing out what my reply here did (that GC has already provided a link to the blog); so, I could continue to post the blog pointers without fear of any GC reprisal. Thanks for the kind words.
