Can we entertain another possibility?

The question is : did Ezra Pound sometime go to the movies?

The year 1933 saw the world-wide success of Alexander Korda's production
of THE PRIVATE LIFE OF HENRY VIII, starring Charles Laughton, and Merle
Oberon - one in a series of Korda films that was to contribute to the
establishment of cinema as an art-form in the post-silent era. The film
begins with the execution of Ann Boleyn and, then, after two short
episodes (one tragic - Jane Seymour; the other comical - Ann of Cleves),
the Howard story is dealt with prominently.
