THE HEIRESS is set in New England at the end of the 19th Century/or the
beginning of the 20th.

GASLIGHT is also good for LONDON -- though it is shot on a soundstage.
LOTS of authentic GASLAMPS in that one!

Thanks,

Subject: [Videolib] FW: feature films with scenes of nineteenth century
life . . .

Can any cinemaphiles out there suggest feature films (past 20 years,
say) that include scenes of European cities from 1865 - 1870--
London, Rome, Paris, Liverpool, Brussels, Nice . . .
and/or
Beacon Hill or Boston-ish scenes (cobblestone streets, horses and
carriage, but no electric lamps!)

A group presenting material on Louisa May Alcott is looking for scenics
(they have checked out the 1994 Little Women)
Second question of the day, but a little more fun this time . . .

issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic
control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in
libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve
as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel
of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video
producers and distributors.
