Characters & Their Movies

Just a fun thought experiment, Gentle Reader. And I may need your help…

If X is your favorite character, what should you watch?



Characters I struggled with…


  • Lord Maccon ~  Needs to be Scottish, obvs, but is Outlander too… Outlanderish? Thoughts?
  • Ivy Hisselpenny ~ Ridiculous hats and extra silliness. I considered Stiff Upper Lips (hats not big enough).
  • Dimity ~ As challenging as Ivy in her own sparkling way.
  • Percy ~ He’s just so Percy, he wouldn’t approve of any of this.
  • Soap ~ Too difficult! Save the Last Dance maybe?

Your suggestions welcome!

Quote of the Day:
“Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you’ve been to college.”
~ Kurt Vonnegut

    I love Rue and Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. I was thinking while I was reading Prudence that Rue and Phryne would get along very well.
