Further to the THES‘s collection of historical dramas that academics most fear Hollywood making, you must, must watch the trailer for the upcoming Casanova. My favourite bit? Addressing Jeremy Irons (who might as well be twisting a waxed moustache and stroking a Persian cat), Sienna Miller delivers a line that Basil Exposition himself would have choked on:
“And what is the Pope’s most feared inquisitor doing in Venice?”
Sienna Miller is so beautiful that even I am having dreams about her (well, only one). Or at least she is when she’s blonde. Is it just me, or does mousy brown hair really fug her up?
No-one expects the Pope’s most feared inquisitor….
And the riposte is surely: “Oh, just investigating the odd canal.”
Is blonde the new black? Formerly flame-haired temptress Nicole Kidman sometimes looks like Barbara Cartland these days
There is a certain Signor Casanova at the door. Shall I let him in, sir?
