In some neighbourhoods of Quebec City, almost every house has a swimming pool!

If you’re a fan of American movie star Burt Lancaster, some scenes will instantly come to mind. The torrid beach make-out scene in From Here to Eternity, his mesmerizing turn as the incarcerated ornithologist in Birdman of Alcatraz, or, near the end of his career and life, as the mythical doctor in Field of Dreams.
