Colin Firth

What an attractive man and a good actor - he deserves an Oscar. I haven't seen "The Kings Speech" yet, so the Oscar I have in mind is the one for "Actor in Regency Period Clothing."

The scene below is a favorite, I gather, among Austen movie aficionados, because Mr. Darcy takes a plunge into a lake. But he looks best in my opinion in the full Regency regalia at the end of this clip. And as always, the hair and sideburns must be just so, as here, to achieve the irresistible look of the period.

Who wouldn't want to hop a ride on the HMS Firth?

Which reminds me - time for the Shipping Forecast!
