Thread Name: Accents: Russel Crowe and Robin Hood?
Subject: RE: Accents: Russel Crowe and Robin Hood?
Well, I can't imagine say, John Wayne doing a western with an Irish accent. But he WAS just John. He didn't really act as much as he just acted like John Wayne.

Even in The Quiet Man, they never had him try to adopt an Irish accent.

But, usually, accents in films don't bother me much.

And yes, not many outside of England can actually recognize a Yorkshire accent from a Cornwall one! Just like Navajo.
