I always have enjoyed Jennifer Garner in her modern films, so when I was recently watching Catch Me If You Can, it reminded me to look into her historical flicks. There’s not a lot of them, but there’s enough for a post!
A TV movie adaptation of Danielle Steele’s romance novel of the same name. I imagine it’s pretty trashy, but Jennifer Garner looks gorgeous in this still from the film.
Dead Man’s Walk (1996)
Based on a novel in the Lonesome Dove series, Jennifer Garner plays Clara Forsythe Allen, the love interest of main character Augustus McCrae (played by David Arquette).
Rose Hill (1997)
Based on the 1995 novel For the Roses, this is another Western hard on the heels of Dead Man’s Walk. Costumes in Westerns never inspire me, so I will probably skip watching this, if I’m gonna be honest.
We haven’t yet done a full review of Washington Square, but the costumes look pretty good just going by the movie stills I’ve seen. They were designed by Anna B. Sheppard, whose credits include a number of period flicks known for their authenticity, such as Band of Brothers (2001) and The Pianist (2002).
I had no idea Jennifer Garner did any frock flicks at all! Thanks!
Jennifer Garner has a decent Beehive in Catch Me If You Can! The hair and makeup in Pearl Harbor bugged me too! Too glam! I don’t think rationing had hit the US yet, so they all should be wearing stockings!
I’ve always appreciated how down to earth she seems. I’ve only seen Catch Me If You Can (enjoyed it). LOVE her dress in the still from Cyrano. Don’t know how accurate, but those colors sing.
I completely forgot, or maybe didn’t realize, Jennifer Garner was Clara in Dead Man’s Walk.
She was delightful in Catch Me if You Can. And now I need to see Washington Square!
I really enjoyed her in Cyrano. That was a good production overall. In the picture from Rose Hill she looks like a dead ringer for Ione Skye. I had no idea she had so many Frock Flick credits to her name.
I watched Zoya a few years back and it wasn’t bad. It’s just that movie you watch because there’s nothing else on tv except game shows and soap opera reruns
Hilariously, she pretty much has the same facial expression in all the pics, lol.
I noticed this too! Almost a confused expression.
