The orange long-sleeved gown with accordion-pleat trim on the over-sleeves worn by an extra in the square at the end of the film is the same costume worn by an extra in the Pump Room when Anne talks with Mr. Elliot in Persuasion (2007), by Lady Willoughby when she meets Lady Russell in the Pump Room in Persuasion (1995), and by the dance teacher during the fan-language lesson in The Regency House Party (2004).

Hollywood will have to wait for long time to see again films of such quality
26 April 2007 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

Hollywood will have to wait for long time to see again films of such quality,films that are condemned not to have a big commercial success but films that will remain in the history of art of cinema.The "ghosts of Goya" is taking us back to a past time showing with incredible reality the conditions of this time,and helped by a great performance of the actors,Milos Forman gives us another sample of his rare directing talent.In the question which film i like most "Amadeus" or "the ghosts of Goya" i can't decide which is more great,Mozart-a genius of music composing,Goya-a genius of painting,aspects of their lives under the unique look of Milos Forman.When i went to see this movie,here in a small town of Greece,there were only 25 people in the cinema,while films like "300" were played here for 2 months with the halls full of people.What can i say?History will judge us all...
