This should put a smile on your face

I first saw this video a while ago at Smart Bitches. I was enchanted from the get go and although I hadn't seen that many of the movies, I still loved it.
Since then I've seen a few - North and South being among them (heh heh)
It's my mission to track down and see every one of them - well except for Tess of the D'ubervilles because I saw that one and it made me cry - in a sad way.
But this one is wonderful.

And as a bonus - free with no extra cost to you the reader, is another fun one

Okay, I think I've seen most of these ones. I think I saw a few glimpses of Matthew Rhys ~ I'll need to track down whatever movie it is that he's in, definitely.

Ana said...

I think I recognise most of them! But which one is it with the guy with looooon hair? 4:05m has one scene with him. ? Anyone? Anyone?

CindyS said...

Uhm, could we list all the movies? I would love to see more of them.

Obviously North and South, Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice (BBC and Hollywood) but after that I have no clue and I saw the guy from Eli Stone in there somewhere and he is a romantic hero then I MUST see it ;)

Kristie, you are a bad influence - I think I need more youtube!


CindyS said...

I went to the 4-05 mark and I recognized the actor as the gay brother in Brothers and Sisters but again, I don't know the movie. Maybe checking with the IMBD under the actors name and then looking at his previous films. Huh. On that note


CindyS said...

Okay, cause I'm trying to avoid anxiety I went to IMDB and Mathew Rhys is at the 4-05 and looks like he did a TV movie call Beau Brummell: This Charming Man and he is Lord Byron.

Figured out another movie was The Importance of Being Ernest (didn't care for the movie)

I am glad I am not the only one who needs a list Cindy...because I could only pick a few of them!

For those interested, someone asked the same question when SB's posted it and here is the list of movies in the first video:
- The Abduction Club
- Daniel Deronda
- Emma (tv-1997)
- Emma (1996)
- Ever After
- The phantom of the opera
- Jane Eyre (2006)
- Mansfield Park (1999)
- Mansfield Park (itv 2007)
- Northanger Abbey (itv 2007)
- Little Women (1995)
- North and South (BBC-2004)
- Pride and Prejudice (BBC-1995)
- Pride and Prejudice (2005)
- Persuasion (itv 2007)
- Sense and Sensibility
- Tess of the D’Urverbilles
- Under the Greenwood Tree

I imagine the second one has a lot of the same movies.

Thanks Kristie!

I do love period dramas. The music in the first video was superb, so cheery!

Kristie (J) said...

Karen: Doesn't it just make you smile? I tell you - they make such great period movies on your little Island!!

Marg: Your welcome. I counted and I've seen 7 or 8 of them. That means I have more to watch - I like that!

Cindy: LOL - YouTube is a wonderful thing - also a very scary thing. I could - and have - spent hours looking up different things

Ana: I don't know the one at 4:05. I looked but didn't recognize it :(

Kristie (J) said...

Dev: You've seen more than me :) There are a couple there that I really want to see - at least based on the short little clips.

Jodi_Lee said...

Ooooooo - I LOVED this!

Kristie (J) said...

Jodi - Aren't they beautiful? I've seen a few of the movies and it looks like a I have a few more to check out :)
