    1. I am so happy to find another Garvie/Rintoul fan. I guess the first P&P you see stays with you always. I’m fine with Firth, too, but Jennifer Ehle was simply _not_ Elizabeth Bennett.

      1. Having read the novel multiple times prior to 1980, I found Garvie and Rintoul were exactly what I’d visualized during my readings.

        And they weren’t my first. I had seen the Garson/Olivier version first and been sorely disappointed.

        1. We shall not speak of the Garson/Olivier version. It simply does not exist for me.

      1. Sorry, I didn’t mean that I should be editing FF posts!! I meant, I should be editing right now, i.e., doing my actual job instead of cruising your site. :-x

  1. Would rather have what Claire was wearing when Jamie came into the room as a wedding dress instead of the actual wedding dress, but yeah definitely that husband.

    Sorry but Matthew Macfadyen is my Darcy.

  2. But… Ciaran Hinds is my Wentworth! Where’s the love? ;)

  3. I just looked at my smallish (less than 50) collection of dvds; the only two which are *not* pre-20th century are The Secret of Roan Inish and Songcatcher, neither of which is exactly modern. Obviously, I qualify as a fairly hopeless case. (Ciaran Hinds is my preferred Capt. Wentworth.)

    1. Secret of Roan Inish is worthy of the best collection. Delightful film though entirely lacking in costumes.

  4. I ticked off all the signs, but not my dream wedding. My dream wedding gown is Alexandra Feodorovna’s coronation gown, church is either York Minister or the Abbey and reception is at Blenheim or Arundel. I will admit that my engagement party dress is Claire’s Wedding Gown. Hubby is Jamie, *swoon*.
    Another sign is throwing things at TV when costume travesties appear, screaming at metal grommets and ROTFLI at really bad costumes.

  5. Hate-watching Reign is totally a thing. It gives me deep joy to shriek, “WHAAAT??” at my television.

    FINALLY. Others who understand why Stephens is the best Rochester. And to think (oh horror) back when he was initially cast, I set up a howl of protest — only for him to persuade me to LIKE him right off the bat. No other Rochester has thus far managed it. :P

  6. Um so I met suitable English gentel man married him emmigrated convinced him that he really really needed to live in a village and wear period clothing and take me balls so that we could learn period dance.

  7. Let’s see my spirit Husband is Alan Rickman, pick a role any role. My dream wedding gown is Little Edie Beale’s coming out gown from Grey Gardens. I adore that cape hood. I can also watch a Frock flick and see if they made custom patterns for the gowns or commercial patterns. I’m looking at you Simplicity 2859. Or if they copied gowns from a specific vendor who’s work is very recognizable. Look at Armstreet and the costuming in Robinhood.
    I hate to admit this but Mia Wasikowska is my Jane Eyre. We finally had a movie plain and feisty Jane.

  8. All the ticks all of them (except for the Poldark one, but alas, that’s the thing of not living in the States)


  9. Dalton may have been a tad too handsome, but he certainly captured the character.

  10. Is it a bad sign that I’ve seen almost every movie/show that the gifs are taken from? I think that might be a sign of addiction right there!

  11. I think we all have seen the shows/movies that the gifs are from. Several times. It shows intelligence, good taste and the ability to drool over the clothes as well as Darcy, Mr Rochester, etal.
