Dear Janet and Leo:
Here is a list I once put together for a project I was working on of movies  
set or shot in Chicago. I hope this  helps.

Hey  folks,

This may seem like a pedestrian idea, but I am supposed to help  out with a 
list of films that center on Chicago, from the mainstream to  the less 
so.  Could you send me any suggestions you might have that  would add to the 
below list?  The turnaround time is just a day or  two, so if you get this 
after tomorrow (Saturday), forget  it.
