But definitely. By the way, does anyone on the list know the answer to the

EDNote: on the story below Carolyn's response to it: I think what the
author has missed, or left comically hidden in plain view, is the likelihood
that VN knew the answer was derived from the film, but thought it showed
enough skill and sensitivity to deserve a decent grade and a tongue-in-cheek
job offer as professional movie summarizer! It's much funnier than Epstein
lets on in his recollection. VN did have a sense of humor, after all!

Actually I find it rawther shocking that Professor V N could be so easily
bamboozled. My Professor V Markov knew all the movies and all the tricks,
and we were asked such questions as "what is a drapdedamavaya shal' " -
you couldn't get away with not reading the text - i po russky.
