The question was “Where in the World is Professor Humphreys?”. You can read the clues here
As I hinted, the first part of the clue had to do with movies. The stanza of poetry I quoted was recited by Diana Rigg in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. She’s attempting to distract the evil Ernst Blofeld (Telly Savalas) from a coming attack on his Swiss mountain hideaway by her father (a mafia chieftain) and James Bond. She does this by feigning a romantic interest in him and invoking the flattering words of the poem.
The script to the movie was by Richard Maibaum, who wrote a majority of the Bond films. Rather than make up his own poetry for the scene he drew on the work of the late-Victorian Era poet/playwright James Elroy Flecker. The source work is here; Flecker penned it not long before he died tragically young in Davos, Switzerland.
The slightly wrong answer requested in the puzzle is from the movie: the town of MÏ‹rren, where the scenes of “Piz Gloria” (Blofeld’s hideout) were filmed. Not far away is the town of Davos where Flecker died, and that is where I was this past week.
Two clever people (chris_y and tomographic) together came close enough to merit a shared prize, you can see their reasoning in the comments section here.
