Or some people refer to them as Period Dramas.
Bring your best British, American, Canadian, or Austrailian Accent (Karen is our model for that last one) and don your corset (or not...)
We're going to feature a few top pics in the Costume Drama realm, but feel free to add your own.
Of COURSE we have any of Jane Austen's lovely pieces, or Charlotte Bronte.
What about L.M. Montgomery? or Elizabeth Gaskell?
How about movies like Horatio Hornblower? or Daniel Doranda or Amazing Grace?
Titanic? The Young Victoria? Tess of the D'Urbervilles or Ever After? Becoming Jane? Miss Potter? The Count of Monte Cristo?
The list goes on and WONDERFULLY on :-)
What are some of your favorites?
Speaking of Drama? :-) What do we have coming up for you this week at The Alley?
On Tuesday, Julia talks about Farming Ideas for your Next Novel
Ash is up today with her typical fun post.
Thursday Karen brings us The Power of Fresh and Original Descriptions.
Cindy talk about Writing For God vs. Writing for the Market (ooooh, sounds like a lot of drama in this one :-)
Winner of Mary Vee's book give away Rooms by Jim Rubart is: Lindsay Harrel. Lindsay please leave your email in the comment section and Mary will contact you.
So - a little Period Drama Trivia (and I'll TTRYYYYY to make it easy)
She hates her red hair and freckles - and would prefer a 'roseleaf complexion". Who is she?
Getting out of prison after about 10 years, he has a score to settle with his former best friend while trying not to be swayed by his former fiance (who is named after a really expensive car). Who is he?
Which movie ends with the BEST Costume Drama kiss of all time? My pick is the one where he's from up north and she's from down south.
Speaking of drama....how about a little matchmaking? She thinks she's pretty great at it, until her matchmaking schemes end up causing her to almost lose the love of her life (who happens to be her best friend). Who is she?
Have a great weekend.
