  1. unrelated note: I think I see where Lucas (or his designers) got ideas for Queen Amidala’s clothing in Episode I. 4th & 5th pictures from the bottom.

  2. Trystan, did you manage to see the Chinese costume exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum? Not to be missed! One section of it (on the ground floor exhibit rooms) uses this film to illustrate the Manchu robes used at the time in the royal court and western fashions influenced by them.

  3. I sort of saw it when my mom was watching it, and it looked like a decent movie, but when you star watching historical dramas produced in China with all of their costumes and sets, it’s really hard to go back to western attempts at imperial opulence.
