we frocked before, we shall frock again!

Omg, can you believe it, we have another podcast -- and rumors say we'll have another one soon after this!

Check out demode, sarahbellem, & trystbat's rantings & ravings about lushly costumed & perhaps weakly acted "The Affair of the Necklace" in our latest Frock Flicks podcast.

Warning: Not for the faint of heart, underage, totally sober, & otherwise easily offended. In addition to discussing frou-frou 18th-century gowns & wigs, Adrian Brody's towel gets a fair number of mentions ;-)

Loved it! You touched on pretty much everything I love/hate about the movie.

Please, please, please Gone with the Wind for the next one!

We've long considered GWTW -- but we have to work up to it! That's a full-day endeavor ;-)

You know I'm down with GWTW. I think we should probably watch the first half independantly and then watch the last half together. Besides, the first half is all boring costumes, anyway... Other than the BBQ dress. The last half has all the good costumes and Rhett is way hotter (he looks totally weird in the beginning scenes, for some reason).

The curtain dress! And Carol Burnett's parody!

This is true.

Oh, and one costume you guys didn't mention that I was intrigued by: the suede redingote thingy. It's what she wears when she returns to her old family chateau, or whatever. Was suede worn in the 18th century? I'd imagine if it was it was only worn by the lower classes.

I'm not positive which one that is, but looking thru this collection of images from the movie, I think it's either velvet, wool, or trying to be a light leather. Hard to say.

Definitely velvet & wool were used in the period, but leather is unlikely for a woman's jacket. Artistic license!

You're back!
Yay, I'm so glad you guys are doing this again!
And please, you have GOT to do My Fair Lady! Cecil Beaton and Audrey Hepburn, what more could you want?

I really enjoyed all of your podcasts so far.
btw I think that Greta Scacchi's costumes in Jeffersen in Paris got the 80s fashion pretty much right some years earlier than Affair Of The Necklace, especially the 'hats'!
Looking forward to your next podcast!

A Podcast About Costume Movies

Ever watch an adaption of Pride and Prejudice and think "Austen totally wouldn't recognize what Lizzie is wearing"? Have you cringed at zippers in the backs of medieval gowns on film? Do you laugh at the latest costume drama's idea of hoop skirts being appropriate for the 1880s?

Then you're a Frock Flicker! Tune in to our podcasts where we rip into Hollywood's attempt at historical costuming and talk about exactly why they're not accurate to the eras. But we're not just dissers -- we'll also look at costume movies we love, and tell you why they're fabulous, beautiful, fascinating films.
