10 thoughts on “WCW: Natasha Richardson

  1. Such a warm and captivating screen presence! the Ang Lee Sense and Sensibility is my favorite Austen adaptation of all time as is, but I’ll admit to always wondering about what the (rumored) proposed casting of Richardson and her sister Joely as Elinor and Marianne would have been like.

  2. “…Faye Dunaway wearing I don’t know what!”

    From the looks of that poster and the stills I’ve seen on Google Image, I’m guessing “industrial-strength facelift tape stretched back so tight she can’t close her eyes.”

    (And yeah, this looks like a good candidate for a Snark Week, based on checking to see if her face looked like that in the show itself.)

    Natasha Richardson is much-missed, and I have to agree that the proposed SENSE AND SENSIBILITY with the (younger) Redgrave sisters would’ve been stellar (though I deeply love the one we got).

  3. Oh, I adore Natasha Richardson. Fell in love with her when I saw The Parent Trap as a girl— she had so much elegance and grace. I need to see more of her frock flicks…I’ll try to find Gothic for Halloween and have been meaning to check out Widows’ Peak.

    1. Same. Ita was The Parent Trap that introduced med to Richardson and I saw it som many times as a girl. I havent seen many of her films, but the ones I saw, I watched so many times i found myself crying when i heard she’d died.

  4. I remember her being talented and quite charismatic. I should have figured out she was the great Tony Richardson’s daughter sooner than I did.

    The Charge of the Light Brigade (1968) is brilliant satire and a very interesting recreation of the period.

  5. Lovely Actress, With A Tremedous Talent and Presence who was taken away from Us Far too soon, I Believe Asylum (2005) was also (supposedly) Period Set In the the 1950’s I Believe, And Not Sure About Tv Movie Mastersons of Manhattan never saw it or got to see any pics but that title sounds like a Period Piece to me

  6. Loved her in Gothic, the release of which was a special event of my college years. What a weird fun film. It fostered my interest in Mary Shelley and Jane Austen and novels of that time. And Julian Sands naked on the roof in a storm. Also loved her in The Handmaid’s Tale, which has interesting dystopian costumes. Yes, in Suddenly Last Summer she has just, well, not escaped, but been released from an insane asylum.
