Re: Turn of the 20th century stage magician historians?

One of the reasons I don't like the film is that all the lead characters are d*cks. They are all antagonists. Even the one good person, the actor you can almost always count on to portray a good person, turns out to be a d*ck.

David is in the scene very briefly--at the beginning he walks from right to left in the aisle behind the main characters. And I think he appears again at the end on the left. He is not, however, the man with the boy.
