Day #21,408

Walk km 2548-2550: Robson/Georgia/Citadel Parade/Dunsmuir/(sky train)/Burrard/Georgia/Thurlow/Haro
Not much walking today as the temperature hit 34.

Movie #1049: The Strong Man(1926, Frank Capra)

Frank Capra's first film as director. As with the Harold Lloyd movie I saw a while back, it's nice to see these restored versions played at the proper speed. However, it is a silent movie so the comedy is limited to sight gags. The best scenes are of Langdon swinging over the saloon. Langdon's persona as the world's wimpiest man is also charming. But I still like those talkies better.
