If you're looking for laughter, angst, romance, costume drama, a gritty
war story, or pretty much anything else, you can find it in a
Regency-set film, television movie or miniseries. What follows is
a list of suggestions, with ratings, capsule reviews, and trivia about
the actors that appear in each production. (You'll notice that a
lot of actors appear in more than one of these!) My list is
divided into four categories: adaptations
the works of Jane
Austen, movies about the Napoleonic
Wars, adaptations of Baroness Orczy's “The
Scarlet Pimpernel,” and miscellaneous Regency-set movies.
(For the record, when I use the term "Regency" on this page, I'm
referring to the extended Regency period -- approximately 1780 to
1830.) So many movies, so little time!
AUSTEN MOVIES AND MINISERIES
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE
1995 BBC/A&E Miniseries “PRIDE AND PREJUDICE”
If you haven’t already seen the 1995 BBC/A&E miniseries starring
Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth, you’re in for a treat. Writer
Andrew Davies (who later adapted the 1997 EMMA) and director Simon
Langton sincerely respect and understand the Austen book, yet clearly
also realize that television is a different medium than fiction.
This PRIDE AND PREJUDICE is vigorous, colorful, and vital, and it never
drags. Jennifer Ehle is a delightful Elizabeth, and Colin Firth
strikes many as the essential Darcy. Fabulous supporting
performances by Julia Sawalha (Lydia), Benjamin Whitrow (Mr. Bennett),
and Crispin Bonham-Carter (whose Bingley is, thank heaven, actually
charming and attractive) help make this miniseries sheer pleasure.
- TRIVIA: Crispin Bonham-Carter is the cousin of
Helen Bonham Carter, famous for “A Room With a View” and “Howard’s
- TRIVIA: Julia Sawalha’s breakthrough role was as the
extremely sensible Saffron on the television show “Absolutely
Fabulous.” She has also appeared in two of the recent “Horatio
Hornblower” television movies.
2005 Feature Film “PRIDE AND PREJUDICE”
This recent adaptation has created a lot of controversy, at least in
certain circles. So let me start by saying that, yes, I know
director Joe Wright is taking liberties both with the period and with
Austen. Yes, I know that Elizabeth Bennet wouldn't be running
around out of doors with her hair down and no bonnet, I know that
ladies wore gloves while dancing and didn't allow gentlemen to buy them
articles of clothing, I know that Darcy would not have been brooding
around on Charlotte Bronte's moors sans cravat, sans waistcoat, and
apparently sans shirt buttons. I know all this, and yet I still
find this film awfully entertaining. (And if that proves that I'm
no pedant, all the better!) Keira Knightley is a passionate and
likable Elizabeth, Matthew Macfadyen is properly proud and yet swoony
as Mr. Darcy, and Brenda Blethyn is an absolute delight as Mrs.
Bennet. There are loads of nice little touches (Mary giving Mr.
Collins a dreamy look, the younger girls actually looking like
teenagers with iffy complexions) and perfect comic timing
throughout. And if Deborah Moggach's screenplay takes certain
liberties (and leaves some things out), it nonetheless does as
admirable job of translating a longish novel into a two-hour film.
- TRIVIA: This is not the only time Tom Hollander (Mr.
Collins) will appear opposite Keira Knightley -- Hollander also
appears in the second and third "Pirates of the Carribean" movies,
- TRIVIA: Kelly Reilly (Miss Bingley) appeared opposite
Judi Dench (Lady Catherine) in "Mrs. Henderson Presents."
- TRIVIA: Quite a few of the actors in this movie also
appear in the film 2004 film "The Libertine," including Rupert Friend
(Wickham), Rosamund Pike (Jane), Kelly Reilly (Miss Bingley), and Tom
Hollander (Mr. Collins).
1940 Feature Film “PRIDE AND PREJUDICE”
The 1940 movie is disliked by some for the liberties it takes with the
original (the women’s costumes are decades off, the five sisters are
now four, and a key character’s character is quite changed), but many
others adore it. Adapted by Aldous Huxley, Helen Jerome, and Jane
Murfin, it is aimed much more at mainstream sensibilities than anything
else on this list. Greer Garson is a suitably strong Elizabeth,
and Laurence Olivier’s interpretation of Darcy makes his shyness quite
clear, and his misunderstanding of Elizabeth believable.
1980 BBC Miniseries “PRIDE AND PREJUDICE”
Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth may be the modern Austen fan’s favorite
Lizzie-Darcy pairing, but twenty-five years ago Elizabeth Garvie and
David Rintoul were thrilling BBC
viewers. With a script by novelist Fay Weldon, it is faithful yet
- TRIVIA: Irene Richard, who here plays Charlotte
Lucas, starred the following year as Elinor in the BBC’s “Sense and
2004 Feature Film “BRIDE AND PREJUDICE”
Directed by “Bend it Like Beckham”’s Gurinder Chadha, the joyous BRIDE
AND PREJUDICE transplants Austen’s story to India. Bingley is now
an Anglo-Indian barrister, Darcy a filthy rich American, and the
Bennetts a prosperous Indian family. The script by Chadha and
Paul Mayeda Berges adds a lot of new things (musical numbers, tract
housing) yet manages to stay true to the spirit of the original more
than one would dream possible.
- TRIVIA: Bingley is played by Naveen
Andrews, famous as Sayid on the television show
1995 Feature Film (in the U.S.) and television movie (in the U.K.)
Those unfamiliar with the book may find the story here bit confusing at
first, but the glories of this film are well worth a tiny bit of
confusion. Roger Michell’s direction of Nick Dear’s script is
sensitive and emotional, realistic and yet somehow very romantic.
Amanda Root is brilliant as the quiet Anne Elliot, and Ciaran Hinds is
oh-so-dashing as Captain Wentworth. Wonderful supporting
performances by many, including Simon Russell Beale and Fiona Shaw,
heighten one’s enjoyment. And though the portrayal of Elizabeth
(Anne’s proud elder sister) is too broad and far too vulgar, it’s about
the only misstep here.
- TRIVIA: Sophia Thompson, who plays the hypochondriac
Musgrove, also appears as Miss Bates in the 1996 “Emma.” She’s
the sister of Emma Thompson, who plays Elinor in the 1995 film “Sense
- TRIVIA: Fiona Shaw, who plays the admiral’s wife, is
known for playing Harry’s Potter’s cruel aunt.
1971 BBC Miniseries “PERSUASION”
This is a good example of the BBC’s erstwhile tendency to make very
faithful, exceedingly lifeless, and utterly boring adaptations.
And that late 1960’s hair is painful to look at!
SENSE AND SENSIBILITY
1995 Feature Film “SENSE AND SENSIBILITY”
Famously written by Emma Thompson (who won an Oscar for her efforts)
and directed by Taiwanese director Ang Lee (who was thought an odd
choice, until the final product turned out so well), this film is
delightfully understandable for those unfamiliar with the novel (or the
period), and just plain delightful for Austen fans. Sure, Kate
Winslet’s Marianne seems more self-indulgent and silly than truly
passionate (as Austen’s Marianne was supposed to be), but everything
else is wonderful. And certain parts of Austen’s original that
many readers find unsatisfying (e.g. “Isn’t Edward horribly wimpy and
stiff? Why does smart, strong Elinor like him?”) are made more
palatable here. The supporting cast is great too, from Harriet
Walter’s grasping Fanny to Gemma Jones’s likable Mrs. Dashwood.
- TRIVIA: Hugh Laurie, who has a small role here as the
newspaper-reading Mr. Palmer, is now famous in the U.S. for his
dramatic role in the television show “House.” In the U.K., he’s
more famous for his broad comedy performances partnered with Stephen
Fry in television programs such as “Jeeves and Wooster” and “A Bit of
Fry and Laurie.”
- TRIVIA: In her diary of the making of the movie, Emma
Thompson wrote: “Greg Wise (Willoughby) turned up to ride . . .
looking gorgeous. Ruffled all our feathers a bit.” She has
since married Wise, and they have a daughter.
- TRIVIA: Alan Rickman, who plays Colonel Brandon, was
the originator of the Valmont role in the play that became the movie
“Dangerous Liaisons.” (In the movie, the role went to John
1981 BBC Miniseries “SENSE AND SENSIBILITY”
Irene Richard and Tracey Childs are well cast as Elinor and Marianne,
(relatively short) miniseries is enjoyable and fun.
- TRIVIA: Peter Woodward, who here plays Willoughby, is
known to science fiction media fans as the techno-mage Galen in the
short-lived “Babylon 5” spin-off “Crusade.”
1986 Television Movie “NORTHANGER ABBEY”
There are some good things about this production -- the costumes, the
lovely views of Bath. But instead of focusing on what was great
about Austen’s novel, director Giles Foster and writer Maggie Wadey
have run wild with the Gothic parody. And as our handsome hero,
we have . . . Peter Firth. Not brooding Colin Firth, no—but
Peter “I look like a weak and sneaky villain” Firth. Painful.
1999 Feature Film “MANSFIELD PARK”
Hmm...if I were writer/director Patricia Rozema, and I thought Austen’s
novel “Mansfield Park” needed a new heroine (because Austen’s Fanny is
merely a teen girl, not an artist, and how can viewers sympathize with
an ordinary heroine?); if I thought Fanny’s lazy mother and spiteful,
adulterous cousin needed more sympathetic portrayals (because they’re
women, so of course they’re victims of society, and cannot be blamed
for their faults); if I thought kindly Sir Thomas Bertram really
needed to be evil, and his self-indulgent son Tom needed to be good
(because viewers need a surprise twist!); if I thought Austen’s
story really needed to be spiced up with sex and violence (because
that’s realism, right?) . . . if I thought all that, I would write my
own story, and not call it “Mansfield Park.” Making matters
worse, Embeth Davidtz and Alessandro Nivola, who are supposed to be
dangerously attractive as the Crawfords, are really rather bland.
- TRIVIA: Lindsay Duncan, who plays both Fanny’s aunt
Bertram and her mother, co-starred with Alan Rickman (Brandon in 1995’s
“Sense and Sensibility”) in the original stage production of “Les
Liaisons Dangereuses” (which became the film
1983 BBC Miniseries “MANSFIELD PARK”
With the exception of Nicholas Farrell, who is a handsome and likable
Edmund Bertram, this miniseries is dull and lifeless.
- TRIVIA: Bernard Hepton, who plays Sir Thomas Bertram, was
seen as Mr. Woodhouse in the 1997 “Emma.” He also appeared as Chauvelin
in the 1969 miniseries “The Elusive Pimpernel.”
- TRIVIA: Samantha Bond, who plays Maria Bertram,
later seen as Mrs. Weston in (yes!) the 1997 Emma. She is best
known to American audiences as the Moneypenny in the Pierce Brosnan
James Bond films.
- TRIVIA: Jonny Lee Miller, who plays young Charles
later played the role of Edmund Bertram in the 1999 film of “Mansfield
Park.” He also co-starred in the 1999 Regency-era highwayman film
“Plunkett & Macleane.”
1996 Feature Film “EMMA”
Writer/Director Douglas McGrath has
actually managed to turn Austen’s long novel into a short movie,
without losing the spirit of the characters. Not all Austen fans
appreciate the changes made to the original, but the good things here
are so very good that I confidently give it a “Highly
Recommended.” Gwyneth Paltrow is a fine Emma, and Jeremy Northam
as Mr. Knightley is a dishy romantic hero. Toni Collette is a
daring choice for Harriet Smith, and does wonderful things with the
role. But Sophie Thompson’s acting as garrulous Miss Bates in the
picnic scene is the highest achievement of this film. Sophie
Thompson’s career has been overshadowed in many ways by that of her
sister Emma Thompson, but she proves here that she has just as much
- TRIVIA: Frank Churchill is played by Ewan McGregor,
became the young Obi-Wan Kenobi in the “Star Wars” movies. So
check out Regency-era Obi-Wan with sideburns!
- TRIVIA: Jeremy Northam later starred in Oscar Wilde’s
Ideal Husband,” though in this he was sadly burdened by an unfortunate
1997 BBC/A&E television movie “EMMA”
With a script by Andrew Davies, who wrote the wonderful BBC/A&E
adaptation of “Pride and Prejudice” two years before, good things
seemed guaranteed, but the results here are disappointing. In
Austen’s novel, Emma is happy, self-satisfied, and loved by all, but
Kate Beckinsale’s Emma seems moody and miserable much of the time, and
she gives those around her little reason for their obvious
affection. Olivia Williams is a lovely Jane Fairfax, but her
coloring is so similar to Beckinsale’s that it often takes a second
glance to tell if one is looking at Emma or Jane. And Mr.
Knightley? Sigh. Our gallant Mr. Knightley is short,
balding, and has eaten a few too many baked apples. True to
life? Perhaps. But true to what makes this viewer
happy? Sorry, no. And yet . . . there are many enjoyable
things in here. The “production values” are high -- lovely
costumes and settings -- and most viewers found this a solidly
- TRIVIA: Lucy Robinson, who plays the social-climbing
Elton, appeared as Mrs. Hurst in the 1995 BBC “Pride and
1972 BBC Miniseries “EMMA”
Doran Godwin is an intelligent and lively Emma, and this is among the
best of the earlier BBC adaptations.
1995 Feature Film “CLUELESS”
Writer/Director Amy Heckerling’s modern teen film is based on Austen’s
“Emma,” and retains its spirit and many of its relationships.
Alicia Silverstone achieves something here that I’ve seen in no other
Emma (or “Cher” in this case): she makes it perfectly clear why
everyone else in her world adores her, despite her laziness and
self-centeredness. Emma/Cher is in love with life, herself, and
the world around her. She’s happy, never cruel, and has a lot of
native intelligence. The changes and modernizations of the story
are fascinating (and reveal that Heck
erling has a real familiarity with the source material). Paul
Rudd is a workable Knightley figure, and as a bonus, we get Wallace
Shawn as Mr. Weston!
- TRIVIA: Alicia Silverstone later appeared in the
movie “Love’s Labours Lost,” directed by Emma Thompson’s erstwhile
husband Kenneth Branagh.
2003 Feature Film “MASTER AND COMMANDER: THE FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD”
Based on Patrick O’Brian’s popular Aubrey/Maturin series, this Peter
Weir film is nothing short of incredible. There is so much detail
here, such a thorough rendering of life aboard a naval ship of the
time, that one can watch it over and over and yet never be bored.
Russell Crowe transforms himself once again as Captain Jack Aubrey, and
Paul Bettany holds his own as Doctor Maturin. There is some
violence and gore that dismays a minority of viewers, but even for
them, this slice-of-life should not be missed.
- TRIVIA: Billy Boyd, who plays coxswain Barrett
Bonden, is more famous for his “Pippin” in the recent
“Lord of the Rings” trilogy.
- Paul Bettany, who plays Maturin, once played a
Geoffrey Chaucer in the just-for-fun movie “A Knight’s Tale.” He
also played Prince William of Orange in “Sharpe’s Waterloo.”
HORATIO HORNBLOWER SERIES
This series of TV movies from ITV and A&E ran from 1998 through
2003, starring Ioan Gruffudd as Hornblower and Robert Lindsay as
his wise captain, with a strong cast of supporting players and guest
stars (including Samuel West, David Warner, David Rintoul, Julia
Sawalha, and Greg Wise).
Based on the venerable Horatio Hornblower novels by C. S. Forester,
these follow the always honorable, ever handsome Horatio Hornblower in
his career in the 1790’s British Navy, beginning when he is a lowly
midshipman. The visuals in the whole series are gorgeous --
period ships, period costumes, period oceans -- and these films are
well worth watching.
In order, the complete series is:
- Hornblower: The Even Chance (1998) (US title: Horatio
Hornblower: The Duel)
- Hornblower: The Examination for Lieutenant (1998) (US
title: Horatio Hornblower: The Fire Ships)
- Hornblower: The Duchess and the Devil (1999) (US
title: Horatio Hornblower: The Duchess and the Devil)
- Hornblower: The Frogs and the Lobsters (1999) (US
title: Horatio Hornblower: the Wrong War)
- Hornblower: Mutiny (2001) (US title: Horatio
Hornblower: The Mutiny)
- Hornblower: Retribution (2001) (US title: Horatio
- Hornblower: Loyalty (2003) (US title: Horatio Hornblower:
- Hornblower: Duty (2003) (US title: Horatio Hornblower: Duty)
- TRIVIA: Ioan Gruffudd has also starred in a number of
Hollywood films, including “102 Dalmatians,” “King Arthur,” and
- TRIVIA: Julia Sawalha (who plays Maria Mason in
“Loyalty” and “Duty”) played the feckless Lydia in the 1995 BBC
miniseries of “Pride and Prejudice.”
- TRIVIA: Greg Wise (who plays Major Côtard in
“Loyalty”) played Willoughby in the 1995 feature film “Sense and
- TRIVIA: David Rintoul (who plays Dr. Clive in
“Retribution” and “Mutiny”) played Darcy in the 1980 BBC Miniseries
“Pride and Prejudice.”
- TRIVIA: Samuel West (who plays Major Edrington in the
fourth Hornblower installment) played William Elliot in the 1995
This series of television movies from ITV (made by Carlton TV) has its
stronger (Sharpe’s Eagle) and weaker (Sharpe’s Gold) episodes, but it
is nonetheless heartily recommended. Sean Bean plays Bernard
Cornwell’s Rifleman Sharpe, a commoner who rises from the ranks in the
Napoleonic-era British Army to become an officer and -- well, perhaps
not a gentleman in any sense of the word, but certainly a strong
leader, courageous fighter, and inveterate womanizer.
In order, the complete series is:
- Sharpe's Rifles (1993)
- Sharpe's Eagle (1993)
- Sharpe's Company (1994)
- Sharpe's Enemy (1994)
- Sharpe's Honour (1994)
- Sharpe's Gold (1995)
- Sharpe's Battle (1995)
- Sharpe's Sword (1995)
- Sharpe's Regiment (1996)
- Sharpe's Siege (1996)
- Sharpe's Mission (1996)
- Sharpe's Revenge (1997)
- Sharpe's Justice (1997)
- Sharpe's Waterloo (1997)
- TRIVIA: Nicholas Farrell, who plays Fenner in
“Sharpe’s Regiment,” was a sensitive Edmund Bertram in the 1983 BBC
- TRIVIA: Alexis Denisof, who plays the smug Rossendale
in “Sharpe's Revenge,” “Sharpe's Justice” and “Sharpe's Waterloo,” is
better known as the occasionally smug Wesley in the TV series “Buffy
the Vampire Slayer” and its spin-off, “Angel.”
- TRIVIA: Julian Fellowes, who plays the Prince Regent
in “Sharpe’s Regiment,” had the same role in the 1982 “Scarlet
- TRIVIA: Alice Krige, who plays the beautiful marquesa
in “Sharpe’s Honour,” played Mary Godwin (the later Mary Shelley) in
the 1988 film “Haunted Summer.” Nonetheless, she is better known
as the Borg Queen in 1996’s “Star Trek: First Contact.”
Baroness Orczy’s fop in disguise, who saves French aristocrats from the
guillotine, is surely one of literature’s great characters. The
fact that Orczy’s prose and plotting were far weaker than her handful
of wonderful ideas means that few still read any of her Scarlet
Pimpernel novels, but Sir Percy Blakeney lives on in film and TV
1934 Feature Film “THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL”
Many find this the definitive “Scarlet Pimpernel.” I find none of
the adaptations perfect (and the source material not even close to
perfect), but this one has a lot of wonderful things. Leslie
Howard plays Sir Percy as a silly, giggling sort of fop -- silly, fun,
and bubbly. Merle Oberon is fine as his wife, the erstwhile
actress Lady Blakeney (though her sporadic attempts to act “French” are
a tad embarrassing.) Raymond Massey has real presence
as the heartless Chauvelin, and Nigel Bruce (better known as Watson to
Basil Rathbone’s Holmes) is a suitably silly Prince of Wales.
1950 Feature Film “THE ELUSIVE PIMPERNEL”
David Niven should have been a fine Pimpernel, but nothing about this
production really works. Don’t bother.
- TRIVIA: Margaret Leighton (Lady Blakeney) played Lady
Melbourne in the 1972 feature film “Lady Caroline Lamb.”
1982 Miniseries “THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL”
Anthony Andrews is a very different Sir Percy than Leslie
Howard--sarcastic rather than silly, with a sexily languorous
wit. This adaptation is worth watching just to compare the two
concepts of Sir Percy the fop. As for the rest -- some works,
some doesn’t. Ian McKellen and Jane Seymout are fine as Chauvelin
and Marguerite, but neither is a stunner. The pace is sometimes
slow, but this is still a watchable, and enjoyable, adaptation.
- TRIVIA: Christopher Villiers, who plays Lord Anthony
Dewhurst here, appeared the following year as Tom Bertram in the 1983
miniseries of “Mansfield Park.” He was later seen as the cowardly
Colonel Bampfylde in “Sharpe’s Siege,” and had a small role in the
abysmal 1987 Barbara Cartland adaptation “Hazard of Hearts.”
- TRIVIA: Ian McKellen played the poet Keats in the
1970 BBC “Keats.”
1999 BBC/A&E Miniseries “THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL;”
1999 BBC/A&E TV Movie “THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL MEETS MADAME
1999 BBC/A&E TV Movie “THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL AND THE KIDNAPPED KING”
The character of the Scarlet Pimpernel is truly memorable for two
reasons: he pretends to be a fop, and he can impersonate anyone
perfectly. So why, in this 1999 BBC/A&E version, did the
resident geniuses nix the whole idea of the Pimpernel in
disguise? In spite of that, this miniseries (and the two TV
movies that followed) are quite enjoyable. Richard E. Grant might
not have been my first choice to play Sir Percy, but he does a fine job.
- TRIVIA: Jonathan Coy, who plays the Prince of Wales,
played Captain Bracegirdle in the ITV/A&E Horatio Hornblower
series. He also was John Thorpe in the disappointing 1986
- TRIVIA: Emilia Fox, who plays Minette, was seen
earlier as Georgiana Darcy in the 1995 “Pride and Prejudice” miniseries.
- TRIVIA: Jamie Bamber, who plays Lord Tony, is quite
the versatile actor! He played Archie Kennedy in the recent
Horatio Hornblower series, and is now seen as Apollo in the new
“Battlestar Galactica” -- quite a different sort of character.
1941 Feature Film “PIMPERNEL SMITH”
Directed by and starring Leslie Howard, who of course had played the
Scarlet Pimpernel a few years before, “Pimpernel Smith” moves the story
forward in time to World War II. This film is surprisingly
successful, considering the circumstances under which it must have been
made. Quite entertaining.
REGENCY-SET FILM AND TELEVISION
1954 Feature Film “BEAU BRUMMELL”
Ouch. Stewart Granger is a romantic hero as Brummell, and
Elizabeth Taylor is his lady fair. Nothing to do with history,
and very little to do with a good story either. Trite and
1987 Television Movie “A HAZARD OF HEARTS.”
Good heavens, what a waste of talent. We have Helena Bonham
Carter, Eileen Atkins, Diana Rigg, Christopher Plummer, Anna Massey,
and more -- and yet this adaptation of the Barbara Cartland novel is
excruciatingly bad. Your life is too short to be spent watching
1994 Feature Film “PRINCESS CARABOO”
This movie doesn’t want you to take it too seriously, so don’t.
pure fluff: fun, whimsical, rather silly. Phoebe Cates plays a
young woman who claims to be an exotic foreign princess, and around her
are a slew of colorful characters played by Kevin Kline (her real-life
husband), Stephen Rea, Jim Broadbent, John Lithgow, and more.
- TRIVIA: Anna Chancellor, who plays Mrs Peake, appeared the
following year as Miss Bingley in the miniseries “Pride and Prejudice.”
1996 BBC/PBS Television Movie “A ROYAL SCANDAL”
The story of Prinny’s marriage to Caroline of Brunswick. Richard
E. Grant is of course too thin to be our prince (as was Rupert Everett
in “The Madness of King George”), but this is quite enjoyable
nonetheless, with gorgeous costumes, wigs, palaces and
mistresses. A fun soap opera which we can pretend is educational.
- TRIVIA: Richard E. Grant is better known as the most recent
- TRIVIA: Irene Richard (Mrs. Fitzherbert) starred in
the 1981 BBC version of "Sense and Sensibility" as Elinor, and played
Charlotte Lucas in the 1980 BBC version of "Pride and Prejudice."
2005 Feature Film "CASANOVA"
This film is not serious at all, and not meant to be. Instead,
it's loads of fun, with bright comedy, beautiful scenery, and gorgeous
people. Heath Ledger is subtly wonderful as Casanova, and his dry
line readings are a delight. Oliver Platt and Omid Djalili are
hilarious supporting players, and director Lasse Hallstrom gives us
gorgeous Venice as a backdrop.
- TRIVIA: Oliver Platt (as Porthos) was the best thing in the
1993 "Three Musketeers."
