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.
