8 thoughts on “Farewell Janet Patterson, Costume Designer (1956-2016)

  1. I’m in a quandary, I loved Bright Star & Portrait of a Lady, and I can’t choose between. Ergo, I’m stating they both are followed by The Piano and Oscar & Lucinda. I need to see Peter Pan and Madding Crowd to make comments on them. But I wasn’t too impressed by the original if memory serves me.

  2. I’ve only seen The Piano and Peter Pan – of those 2, I would pick Peter Pan. I need to watch the other movies.

  3. There have been different timelines for each version of “Far From the Madding Crowd”. The 1967 version is set one hundred years earlier during the mid 1860s. The 1998 version was set between the late 1850s and early 1860s. And this new version is set between the late 1870s and early 1880s. Aside from the leather jacket, I had no problems with Carey Mulligan’s wardrobe in the 2015 film.

  4. Hmm, I haven’t seen all of these yet but I think I’m going to go with Bright Star for wonderful costume + presence of sewing. I think I bought the DVD almost just for the opening credits of sewing.
