1. What period dramas did you view in January?
Cinderella (1914), We're No Angels (1955), and The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938).
2. What is your favorite Charles Dickens film adaptation?
Well, the awful truth is I haven't seen a whole lot of Dickens adaptations. But I do love both The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992) and the Patrick Stewart version of A Christmas Carol (1999) enough to own copies of them.
3. Would you rather visit Pemberley (Mr. Darcy's residence) or Downton Abbey (Crawley family residence)? Why?
Pemberley! Because I really like Jane Austen's books, but I don't care much about Downton Abbey.
4. If you could be any character in a Jane Austen novel for a whole day who would you be and why would you want to be that character?
Could I pick which day? Because being Anne Elliot the day after Captain Wentworth proposed would be amazing and triumphant and delicious.
5. What period dramas are you looking forward to viewing in February 2016?
I'm planning to watch Shane (1953) and the Frank Langella version of The Mark of Zorro (1974), both of which will be rewatches. I'm also hoping to watch Belle (2013) for the first time. Beyond that, who knows?
