Back to School Repeat: What Qualifies as a Frock Flick?


As folks head back to school this season, Frock Flicks is sharing some of our educational posts from the archives. Check out our Frequently Asked Questions and our Frock Flicks 101 course to learn more, and we’ll return with new posts next week!



When you say ‘historical costume movies,’ what do you mean?

Gone With the Wind

We review and discuss movies and TV shows that are consciously set in a time previous to their production — so a flick filmed in the 1930s but set in the 1860s. We tend to enjoy pre-WWII periods, and we don’t review sci-fi/fantasy costuming.

    I am too old-fashioned, my frock flicks only go as far as the Edwardian era, maybe some WW1 films…if not too much war. And no fantasy, sci-fi or time travel for me. So a lot of what is coming out in the next year is not to my taste. Am looking forward to Custom of the County and the new Buccaneers by Edith Wharton…though the original series is so good, seems doubtful a new one will match up. Also Devil in the White City, Marie Antoinette, and The Empress (Sisi) are on my list for the next year or so…
