Having watched this movie about a hundred times now, I know that watching it again for the challenge is sort of cheating. But I love it too much NOT to watch it!!!! I did notice something that I had not noticed before.
When Anne goes to visit Mrs. Smith after leaving Frederick abruptly, Mrs. Smith says that they had only just learned of Mr. Elliot’s dastardly plan. THIS IS NOT CANON!!! Mrs. Smith’s husband had had dealings with Mr. E before he left this world and Mrs. Smith with nothing. That’s how she came upon her state of poverty. It was, indirectly, Mr. E’s fault (it has just occured to me, typing this, that at least two of Austen’s slimy men have last names beginning with ‘E.’ Elton, Elliot, etc). But that makes the movie incorrect. ALAS! A FLAW WITH THE MOVIE! It also occurred to me for the umpteenth time that the circus scene, to contrast Frederick and Anne walking away talking quietly together, was much too long.
All in all my opinion of the movie has not changed. I love it still. sigh. It is fantabulous.
