Saw this movie on Fox Movie Channel
19 February 2007 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Turned to this channel and was very pleasantly surprised by this movie. I read all of the previous postings especially the one written by the young girl who talked about the style of dress for the characters. People did not dress as they do now. Today we have grandmothers running in pageants in swim suits. In 1941 any woman in her 50's would never put on such an article much less wear it in public. Further a woman who had been a schoolteacher would have held herself up to a very high standard of respectability and social standards and mannerisms. Many women today seem to debase themselves publicly for the sake of looking young and in the know.

If you look at the "gowns" worn by Colbert they are not correct for 1915-1916. True dresses of the period would have been much longer and a great deal dowdier. The one outfit where she is wearing fur trimmed coat and hat would have been impossible to buy in Indiana where the movie is set. Someone like Mary Pickford in New York might own something like that but never a 23 year old teacher in the Midwest. In fact the white, bowed dress is more appropriate for 1936-1937.

The tailored, cinched waisted suits worn by Payne are clearly 1940's. An average suit in 1916 would have looked more like a black bag hanging on him. His shirts would have high starched (celluloid) collar and cuffs that were removable and changeable. The body of the of the shirt would be washed once per week. But then Payne could have worn a black bag and still looked as delectable.
