For anyone looking for a real treat, catch Finding Neverland with Johnny Depp, of POTC fame - well worth a bit of work to find, and starring Kate Winslet.



I finally saw this film, thanks to my sister-in-law loaning me her rented-out DVD. And I dare say, that I simply loved it! I even got emotional when Kate died towards the end, didn't you?

Lights,

A MP tune Julie Andrews sang--"Just A Spoon Full of Sugar", that goes like this:

Just a spoon full of sugar helps
The medicine go down
The medicine go down
The medicine go down

Just a spoon full of sugar helps
The medicine go down
The medicine go down
In a most delightful way


Many moons ago, I thought of how I, then a teenager, took my dose of Dr. Salk's Polio Vaccine with a soaked sugar cube, when I used to live in Riverside County, CA. The day that I took the vaccine, I rode up on my then first horse, a sweet little mare that I aptly named, Lady.

You know what? That song certainly does ring true, doesn't it?emoticon

Re: Edwardian Era Movies


Since this film was set in 1901, I can safely add John Wayne's The Shootist, to our list. emoticon

His co-stars in this film are equally notorious, and they are: Lauren Bacall; James Stewart; M*A*S*H's Harry Morgan; Have Gun Will Travel's Richard Boone; The Legend of Wyatt Earp's Hugh O'Brian; and The Andy Griffith Show's "Opie" and Happy Days's "Richie Cunningham"'s Ronny/Ron Howard.

How's that for a very impressive list of co-stars, guys? emoticon

Walt Disney's Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is still yet another EEM-type [sign in to see URL] I believe, starred actor--Dick Van Dyke. It's really cute movie musical, if I say so myself. emoticon

Re: Edwardian Era Movies


Some of the films that I have seen recently, that are set in the Edwardian Era are:

The Titanic films.

Britannic. Made in 2000, probably to cash in on Titanic (1997) and not going to win awards for accuracy but still not a bad film.
 
The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill and Came Down a Mountain. Set in 1917 and staring Huw Grant, Ian McNeice, Tara Fitzgeral..., two English cartographers are sent to a Welsh village to measure its mountain and discover it is only a hill, the villagers must delay them in leaving, so that they can increase the height of the hill, to make it a mountain.

Miss Potter. (is that set in the Edwardian era?) Staring Renée Zellweger, it is a film about Beatrix Potter, the author of stories, such as Peter Rabbit.

Re: Edwardian Era Movies


How can anyone forget these three Canadian TV movies that are based on Lucy Maud Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables and its follow-up sequel--Anne of Avonlea!? Actress, Megan Follows played the title role of the fiesty "Anne Shirley" in both of these films.

Road To Avonlea/Avonlea starring Sarah Polley as "Sara Stanley," still another LMM TV movie, and...

I believe that LMM's Emily of New Moon, a pilot TV movie als takes place in this same era too. Child Actress, Martha MacIsaac played the title role in this film. She later went on to also play the title role of "Emily Byrd Starr" in the TV series of this same title.


All of LMM's books, for which these movies are based, take place on Canada's Maritime Province of Prince Edward [sign in to see URL] is just off of the coast of Nova Scotia.

Re: Edwardian Era Movies


The Man From Snowy River, can also be added to this thread, b/c it takes place during the early Edwardian 1889 era! emoticon

AMC (American Movie Channel) aired it yesterday afternoon, and I really liked it. It's storyline takes place some where in Australia, and it's all about horses.

Actor Kirk Douglas plays a duel role this this beautiful film.

The Edwardian era is 1901-1910. 1889 is the VICTORIAN era.
