Winter Repeat: The Barretts of Wimpole Street (1934)


The Frock Flicks team is taking a little extra time off at the end of 2019, so we’re repeating some choice posts from the archives.


The love affair of Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning is drowned in ruffles by Adrian’s costumes, along with some floppy-eared puppies and Trystan’s poetry. The movie is currently available for rent on Amazon and iTunes.

    “The Barretts of Wimpole Street” seems to be prime remake material, if only for the puppy!
