When I saw "Godspell" on a local stage several years ago it was:
"It says 'Rejoice!'"
"It says 'Reebok'." :-)

*chuckle* I love the fluidity built into that show.

*giggle* Kayley + Garrett = best animated couple EVER.

And there is just No Bad with a movie that ends with them driving off in a cart with a "JUST KNIGHTED" sign on it...

1998 was an awesome summer to be a little girl at the movies. Or a bigger girl, for that matter. Kayley and Mulan!

I think Mulan was the last movie until Sweeney Todd that I saw multiple times in the theater.

Who is that, why don't I know her, and how fast can I fix it?

Her name is Djaq and she's from a British TV series called Robin Hood, about--you guessed it--Robin Hood. (Currently my most fervent obsession) The first season is available from Netflix, and the second season will air on BBC America in the spring. Or I can hook you up with downloads of questionable legality.

Ahh, thought that might be it. They're on the Netflix queue, so I'm set. :-) Thanks!

No problem! Always happy to get somebody watching Robin Hood :D

#8 isn't as recognizable as I figured though I probably have seen it (sword fights. check.) I do need to kick myself about #10 and #15 which seemed vaguely familiar but weren't ringing any bells yesterday. I blame the incessant coughing I've been doing (that's my story, etc.)

It's a little obscure, even within the genre. Pretty much the tail end of the Technicolor swashbucklers. But anything that involves Maureen O'Hara making mincemeat of two guys at once (and in a technically believable manner, or as near as you can tell because damn those fights move fast!) and you can bet I'm there. And, oh, yeah, Cornel Wilde. ;-)

And a very familiar story for close to a week now. {{ sympathy }} Feel better!

Oh, wow. I must see this! Library, library, library.

I haven't seen anything on this leftovers list except, of course, The Lost Boys (I am at least a functional fangirl, if usually a direly confused one ~g~).

They use to play a lot of the old movies on Sunday afternoons(I'm thinking this was possibly pre-VHS days) I saw everything that had Musketeers, Robin Hood, Pirates, well you get the picture. I'm not 100% sure so I might try to find it at the library just to see. Always a plus to see a female character that swordfights. It used to bug me there were so few of them (and then brothers would make sure I knew that sword fighting was not for girls).

And a very familiar story for close to a week now. {{ sympathy }} Feel better!

Thank You. You too. and luck to you not to get any of the other nasty things that are going around this winter.

Maureen did a handful of the Technicolor swashbucklers, but the ones where she got to show off her own chops were At Sword's Point, Against All Flags and The Black Swan. I don't remember which one I saw when I was a little girl, but OMGLIFELONGFAN from then on. I already wanted to play with swords; she's totally why I started wanting to be a redhead. ;->

It shouldn't surprise me any more how often I hear other women in stage combat talking about how they got into it to defy people who told them they couldn't/shouldn't. Never once occurred to me that I couldn't be the pirate queen of the playground if I darn well pleased.

I will definitely have to keep an eye out for those movies! I am so curious to see if they will be familiar when I watch them.

I liked being Captain of the Guard myself *grin* I gave up listening to the naysayers because just about everything I was interested in was "not for girls" (sci fi/fantasy, martial arts, sharp pointy things, math). Luckily that kind of thing is not as prevalent these days as it was when I was in younger.

*sigh* this is what happens when you're behind on your reading *grin*
So ignore my last comment, and yay for not having to research titles...now i just need to find a copy of At Sword's Point for this weekend :)

Your best bet may be the library, if they have a decent collection on VHS. Still no DVD. *pout*
