  1. The sad thing though it never received an Oscar nomination for its costume design but the Baftas saw fit to nominate it.

  2. Nobody, BUT NOBODY — does period dress like you British. I have an M.A. in Theatre with a specialty in costume design and construction from one of America’s great universities. One of our instructors was British.

    You British are such a breath of fresh air in a film/theatre world corrupted by American commercialism. Fourteenth century men’s haircuts is a case in point. No one but you wonderful British would stick to such woefully unattractive hair in films and theatre. I remember handsome film actor Tyrone Power in a film obviously shot in Britain.

    His haircut looked as if a bowl had been put on his head and the hair cut around it — marvelous authenticity but so satisfying to someone like me, with an historical viewpoint! I salute you!

    Thank you, than you, thank you!

  3. I don’t remember much from the movie except that Nigel Hawthorne was TERRIFIC. I will follow your advice to revisit it.
