I stayed up later than I meant to last night, because I caught the beginning of a little doco called “History of Costume Drama” looking at the British film/television efforts regarding frocking and frogging up in bonnets and breeches to tell a classic tale. What a store of nostalgia! So, I hereby introduce an occasional feature, whereby I shall share favourite costume drama moments/characters, we call all reminisce, and suggestions for the next GCCDB feature can be put forward. All period dramas welcome, not just Regency. I’ll probably do I CLAVDIVS sometime soon.
But since I just finished re-reading Pride and Prejudice, who else can I start with but Lizzy and Darcy?
I chose this shot because it’s just about the only moment in the whole thing where we see Firth’s fabulous smile.
