Thread Name: Accents: Russel Crowe and Robin Hood?
Subject: RE: Accents: Russel Crowe and Robin Hood?
I vaguely remember something in recent times about a movie set in Nazi Germany where the actors spoke English with German accents!

Even in the best dressed & designed films there is something that screams modern. Clothing styles usually have something of the designer's day in them, hair is usually not accurate, & makeup is another giveaway.

One pics I've seen of Robin & Marion shows her wearing what looks like a long-sleeved tee-shirt with something corset-like, but not tight laced (corsets weren't worn in those times) over it.

One of my historic costume books was written in 1904. Society ladies modelled their ancestors' dresses & are illustrated by perfect drawings of these 18th century dresses worn by Edwardian ladies with Gibson Girl faces.
