Regency Films


The following dramas are set in the Regency Era
(referring to George IV's reign as Prince Regent from 1811-1820)

These films include adaptations by these authors: Jane Austen, Alexandre Dumas, Leo Tolstoy, Anton Chekhov, Patrick O'Brian, Bernard Cornwell, Robert Louis Stevenson, Joseph Conrad, William Makepeace Thackeray, James A. Michener and Barbara Cartland

The dramas also include biopics of: John Keats, Frédéric Chopin, Ludwig van Beethoven. Napoleon Bonaparte, Princess Caraboo, Jane Austen and The Brothers Grimm

I also noticed that
Gerard Depardieu, prolific actor that he is, can be found in 3 of these dramas: Napoleon, Count of Monte Cristo, and Les Miserables as well as portraying the writer Dumas and in Le colonel Chabert and Balzac, 2 French films set in this era.

    I'm not sure if it should go in the Georgian era or Regency since it covers both.

  2. Hi,
    Im writing my dissertation on films that encourage tourism, and was wondering, does watching period and heritage films make you want to go and visit the sets and the manor houses?
    Any answer would be greatly appreciated, whether short or long.
    Many thanks,

    Ruby

  3. "THE DECEIVERS" is set in 1825, which is not part of the Regency era.
