A (movie) sign from home

You see them all the time in Los Angeles - those bright yellow signs that direct actors and crew members to location shoots.  They aren't so common here in DC.  But yesterday, driving home from Capitol Hill, I spotted one.  I did a double take to make sure it was what I thought it was.  Yup.  A film shoot around the corner.  But unlike the signs in LA that often disguise the particular project, this one spelled it out loud and clear: "J Edgar."  Apparently there aren't enough filming groupies here to require mysterious monikers on film shoot signs.  It's a big deal movie: directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Leonardo DiCaprio.  Haven't spotted either of them on Capitol Hill though.
