Yep, Meryl Streep about twenty years ago. Although, judging from the recent Academy Awards, she still looks great. I looked her up, and she actually played a Pre-Raphaelite beauty, in a film called "The French Lieutenant's Woman." I am guessing it must be based on the novel by the same name.

Sorry to butt in, but the French Lieutenant's Woman WAS based on the novel by John Fowles, it was made in 1980. It was filmed at Lyme Regis, a gorgeous little seaside town just 12 miles from where I live. There is a very famous scene with Meryl Streep walking down the Cobb (here: http://www.dp-now.com/archives/000379/sep2003/images/Keith%20Lee.jpg)

I won't walk down it - too scared of heights!!!

Isn't that where scenes from the 1995 film of Persuasion was shot -- Lyme Regis, with the characters walking along the Cobb? (One of my top ten films ever.) Watching that scene in Persuasion made me want to go there badly, the light was so beautiful.

I never did see all of The French Lieutenant's Woman all the way through, although I read the book. Did the book go back and forth between centuries the way the film did? I found that a little disconcerting. Loved the scenery, though.

Really, BEB, I can't remember. I read the book when I was very young and can't recall how it was structured. But I remembered having enjoyed it. I was disappointed when I finally tried to watch the film. Meryl Streep looked super in her 19th century costume, though.
