  1. Jennifer Redlarczyk says:

    Love it! But how about JA and Beethoven on Dec 16th? Two of my inspirational favs!

  2. How about Sinatra then? He was an actor, nit a JA actor but ab actor of some quality and a singer of renown. 😀
    I do believe Miss Hunt looks more like my idea of Her Ladyship 😉

    • I thought Maggie Smith as Lady Gresham in “Becoming Jane” (the Lady Catherine de Bourgh facsimile in the film) was equally as daunting as Barbara Leigh Hunt.

      • Well naturally I never bothered to see that movie :wicked:

      • My Advanced Placement English Language class and I went to see it during the summer of its opening. Afterwards, they asked what was “true” and what was “fiction” about the story. I spent about 15 minutes recounting specific items. Surprisingly, few of other members of the audience left. Instead, they asked me to speak up so they might hear my insights. LOL! You might check out my previous post on “Becoming Jane,” even better I’ll repost it on December 24 just for you. Take care, my friend.
