The Emperor's Club

The Emperor's Club (2002)

1 corrected entry

Corrected entry: When Elizabeth tells Hundert about their trip to Greece she addresses some stereotype tourist activities, like drinking too much Ouzo or having shish kebab near the Akropolis. The latter is the Turkish skewer version and certainly not typical fast food in Athens in the mid seventies, at a time of extreme tension between Greece and Turkey.

Correction: In the US, "shish kebab" is a fairly generic term for any skewered meat. There is no evidence that the restaurant she ordered the food from called the food "shish kebab." Rather, it's only her vague recollection of the day, hazed by the ouzo no doubt, that could have lead her to fall back on the more generic "shish kebab," rather than the likely more appropriate "kalamaki."
