This You Tube video made me smile as it has clips from so many great adaptations. This works on so many levels. The fact that this song was in the first Bridget Jones film (you know, the part where Hugh Grant and Colin Firth are having the most ridiculous fight over Bridget-grabbing clothes and kicking etc) makes you instantly bop your head and think of a couple of British cuties right off the bat. That and the wonderful editing of many of my favorite swoon worthy scenes really keeps me coming back to play this one again and again.
Northanger Abbey. So cute with that little smirk.
North & South.
Emma 1996 (Emma, try not to kill my dogs).
Sense and Sensibility 2008.
Pride and Prejudice.
Wives and Daughters(oh, teach me some Biology, Roger).
Persuasion (I am half agony, half hope), and then I have to stick my neck out here and guess, JJ Field again in The Shadow in the North? Apparently, I have some shopping to do on Amazon! I love JJ, as does the creator of this video apparently.
Amazing Grace, although some of you will recognize him more as Horatio Hornblower.
Pride and Prejudice 1996 who we have in most of his best looks and ending in the tub with him (although no wet shirt scene?!?!)
Sense and Sensibility 1996 (otherwise known as Greg Wise/Mr. Emma Thompson).
Sense and Sensibility 2008 , very hot and understated.
Sense and Sensibility 1996.
Sense and Sensibility 2008, Domenic Cooper, who just about loses his head in this video (perfectly timed with the lyrics).
Cassanova, but this is not the Heath Ledger version of Cassanova also from 2005. This is another one I have to order, as I only know David Tennant from Doctor Who.
Feel free to comment on what you love about this video, or what you would have added. I think this was done a few years ago, so there have been many great period dramas released since then. Have fun with this one and please share it with whoever you think it would bring a smile to.
