The Lady Vanishes

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

Last weekend saw the broadcast of BBC remake of classic Alfred Hitchcock film The Lady Vanishes.  By all accounts this version follows the original 1936 novel by Ethel Lina White, The Wheel Spins, more closely; however, it is no Hitchcock and much of the humour of the 1938 film was lost.  There were wonderful vintage glasses throughout.

 

 

 

Vintage Oval Glasses in Anna Karenina

Russian classic Anna Karenina has yet again been made into a film.  This version features a screenplay written by Tom Stoppard and stars Kiera Knightley (Anna Karenina) and Jude Law (Count Vronsky).  The character Count Vronsky wears vintage oval glasses appropriate to the period and similar to our Saville Row Oval Padless Gold frames.
