| Interesting and well down presentation of the REGENCY, not Georgian period!
Brummell was a self-made man in the REGENCY period of England. This film is a joy to watch, especially if you read Jane Austen and/or Georgette Heyer. A visual for all the costumes and "sets" from those books. Brummell MIGHT be considered a dandy, with his emphasis on appearance and ennui. His style was much more severe and monochromatic than any self-respecting (and caricature of a) dandy would have worn in that period. Understatement and elegance and refinement were his precepts. Yes, he spent hours getting ready, but no make-up, no extremes in style, no overly high shirt points, etc. For that type of dandy look at such other real life persons as Poodle Bing.
