Gov Don Carcieri (R-RI) put up with the Hollywood film crews taking down a chandelier from the statehouse ceiling. He bit his tongue when they replaced lamps with statues and built a false front to the Senate chamber.
But when they flew a fake flag from a fictional city over his capitol (left) -- that was the last draw.
He's looking into the way the state loans out it's state capitol for movies. Like for this particular epic -- "Underdog." It's a live action version of the 1960s cartoon that featured Marlon Brando's roomate Wally Cox (right).
Stay classy, Providence! (Boston Globe)
