Happy July Fourth Weekend From Frock Flicks

The team is taking an extra long weekend break on this American holiday to recover from a half year of hardcore frock-flicking! We’ll be back with a new blog post on Tuesday, July 5. If you want a historical costume movie/TV fix in the meantime, check out our archives and find us on Facebook and Twitter.

Three historical costumers who decided the world needed a podcast and blog dedicated to historical costume movies and everything right and wrong with them.

    Two things of recent outrage: ( I know costume fails don’t amount to a hill of beans right now in this crazy world but I must share nevertheless). 1. Saw the old Carousel movie musical last week: costumes terrible and anachronistic. Shirley’s dresses all wrong with length, bodice and everything. Her daughter’s straight out of the late 1950’s on the beach at a time that must be roughly 1905?? Then. watched rather good production of Ragtime here in Western MA last night whose costumes especially for the men were pretty accurate, but failed on the women – particularly ‘Mother’ who was wearing a light blue gauzy polyester wrap around skirt and matching extremely ill fitting puckery bodice with uneven hem and
    a neckline out of circa 1953. She needed clothing that was easy to get on and off because of the staging, but so little thought seemed to have been put into it: Wrong cut, style, color, fabric. And Sara’s flowing, trimmed yellow dress with an odd brown (leather?) belt was straight out of 1932, not 1902…OK, I’m done. You can google Barrington Stage for pix… Love to hear others’ opinions…
