Film Requests


EDIT: Comments have been turned off since I am no longer updating this site


Welcome to the Request Page!

Please feel free to leave requests for new and/or additional screen-captures and images in the comments below.

Usually new requests are added to the poll found in the side bar, but the system isn't totally democratic and I occasionally bump films to the front of the queue if I'm particularly keen to get them onto the site.
That being said, I'll probably be able to post images for films I already own a bit more quickly (of which a complete list can be found here).

I have a fair collection of movies but I'm always on the lookout for new and obscure period films, so if a request is new to me I'll definitely try to get my hands on it.


(Note: At the moment I can only review Region 1/NTSC and Region 2/PAL films on DVD)



  1. Hi Jenn,

    This isn't on your film collection list and I'm surprised: BBC's The House of Eliott!

    Of the films you have, here are the ones I'd love to see you put on the site:

    Fingersmith (2005)

    Jane Eyre (1983)

    Lost in Austen (2008)

    Miss Austen Regrets (2008)

    The Mists of Avalon (2001)

    Pride & Prejudice (1980)

    Shakespeare in Love (1998)

    Sissi (1955)

    Victoria & Albert (2001)

    Will Shakespeare (1978)

  2. I don't know how historical this is but the syfy network's mini-series Tin Man has some interesting costumes.

  3. The BBC's The Way We Live Now has a lot of great bustles.

  4. Would love to see more Nightgown images as and when they appear within films - surely a much loved garment - especially the Victorian era variety and their accompanying Nightcaps.

  5. I'd like for you to review Feast of All Saints. It's more of a mini-series though, so I'm not sure if it'll be too long for you. Thanks...

  6. I love the new Dolley Madison documentary that was on PBS under The American Experience. Awesome dresses, bonnets & turbans!

  7. Angels & Insects (1996)
    Bright Star (2008)
    Doctor Zhivago (1965)
    Emma (1996)
    Hamlet (1996)
    Nicholas and Alexandra (1971)
    The Piano (1993)

    These are some of the films I would Like to see screencapes on this wonderful blog of yours. Keep up the good Work.

  8. Hi!

    I would love to see "Sissi"(miniserie), production of Rai Uno(italian channel).

  9. Hi Karyna,

    Unfortunately I can't locate either a PAL or NTSC version of the series on DVD.

  10. I really love the costumes in the old Disney movie The Sword and the Rose (about Mary Tudor and Charles Brandon)

  11. i really love see ever after on this site because it is my faveorite movie and i would like if could put on there

  12. Fingersmith (2005)and The BBC's The Way We Live Now^^

  13. I think that The Buccanners, the film version of Edith Wharton's last novel (unfinished) is one of my faves and has some of the best high Victorian costumes I've ever seen. Plus it was filmed partly at Castle Howard, which is soooooo gorgeous. And stars Greg Wise....
    I have a blog about Period Drama and would love to put a link with yours on my site. Cheers!

    Jenny Allworthy

    First of all I have to say that your site is wonderful!
    I would like to see screencaps from War and Peace, the version you like best.
    Thank you!
    Bye bye

  21. For now I recommend just this one that is my fantasy fav movie: The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm, 1962 (directed by Henry Levin and George Pal).

  22. I am looking for a gown I saw in a movie in the 1990s. it was a stunning Victorian of black lace with a bustle but tight fitting with a high collar and long sleeves. I can't remember the movie but the scene was a young woman in a room with a desk reading or writing a letter and the detail of the lace was fabulous. Could have been late Victorian or Gibson Girl. Have you ever seen?

  35. Hi!
    I really love your blog, it's amazing!
    I'm interested in Jane Asher, an actress who portrayed Jane Seymour in Henry VIII & His Six Wives (1972). Can you add more pics of her?
    Also she starred, along with Vincent Price and Hazel Court in Masque of the Red Dead (1964).
    If you can have "The Four Just Men" (1960), "The Prince and The Pauper" (1962), "Romeo & Juliet" (1963), "The Mill on the Floss" (1965), "The Tempest" (1968), "The Wicked Women" (1970), "The Stone Tape" (1972) and "Hawkmoor" (1977), that could be wonderful!

  38. Cyrano de Bergerac -- in particular the embroidered corset Roxanne is wearing before she changes to go to the musicale

  39. Hi, I found your blog a couple of years ago and love it.
    I would love for you to review and scan the costumes for director Richard Lester's The Three Musketeers (1973)/The Four Musketeers (1974). The costumes for these 2 movies are gorgeous.
    Keep up the good work and I look forward to whatever your selections are.

  40. Screencaps from He Knew He Was Right would be very helpful, and that one has some lovely costumes. :) (By the way, thank you for having this blog! I find it most useful.)

  44. I would really love to see costume captures for the film Onegin. Both the female and male character costumes are beautiful (and if you can include a bit of background in those photos, I wouldn't complain - the sets are beautiful, too).

    Thanks for all the wonderful photos!

  45. I would like to see Richard III screencaps

  46. Hi, Jen!

    I'm missing new updates... Do you will post new movies or the rest of the others already posted?

    I really love your work!


    1. Probably not for a long while.
      With the update to the new Blogger platform the posts take much longer to format and I just have next to no free time these days! Maybe when the film I'm on wraps up I'll be able to get back to it, but that's not for months yet.

  47. There's a film called "Princess of Theives" which has a costume I'm trying to make. So if you could get that one, that would be great!
    However, I understand you have A LOT of requests!

    I love your blog! It has been really helpful for me!

  48. I love this site, but I would like to see a bit more medieval costumes, maybe from things like Pillars of the Earth, or Ivanhoe, and such,. But I would love to see costumes from the Hunchback of Notre Dame. Also, I always wanted to know, when you rate a movie, are you rating the movie or the costumes? Thank you and again, love this site.
