I guess some people need that much variety--I, for one, believe that if you going to get naked with someone and spice it up--do it with someone you have feelings for--then swing from chandeliers... :wink: :lol:

C'mon, now, my friends--everyone has been sweet enough on someone to want to swing from the chandelier with them...besides, even if you haven't with that certain someone--at least you can say you have in here (pointing to head)--because that's where the biggest erogenous zone is anyway--well, at least for some. 8) :lol:

OK, this is the absolute geek in me talking: I'm really excited about this potential new movie about Keats and Fanny B. (Hope I'm not 80 years old when it is actually released! :lol:) Anyway, I was thinking, what scenes do *you* think *must* be included in this movie? Something fun to ponder. . .

A few scenes I'd like to see include:

Fanny Brawne wandering across the heath alone at night after Keats goes to Italy (or just after he dies).

Keats appearing on the Brawne's doorstep after leaving the Hunts' in aggitation.

I had a few others in my head last night, but I can't remember them this early in the morning! ;)

Obviosly a scene of Keats taking the cab on the outside then coming home and colapsing with his illness.

Scenes of him on his voyage to Italy with voice-overs of the letters to Fanny and in the house in Rome his illness and death.

So much must be included.

The highland tour with Brown?

The immortal dinner.

An Isabella Jones scene?

I wonder will it concentrate solely on his relationship with Fanny or will we see George, Toms' death, Haydon, Hunt etc?

I would very much like to see Keats watching Fanny through the big glass window from his reading room at Hampstead while she is in the garden in the back...I stood there...it was surreal...he talks about 'seeing' her there in one of his letters...he steals those moments and they are sacred to him. :) :( :cry:

That's another excellent idea - the possobilities are literally endless.

Why bother waiting so long?

Aw heck I want to MAKE this film myself.

I can do the Orson Welles thing no problem - I'll write, direct and star in it.

:wink:

Yes! That's the first one that popped into my head. Actually, in all my musings on what "Keats on film" would/should look like, this is the scene that is most vivid in my mind.

And I think if we have Andrew Motion helping with this thing as well, we're sure to see some good stuff of the voyage to Italy and subsequent scenes from Rome (re: his TV special).

I'd love to see the Immortal Dinner as well, but methinks that for sake of time constraints, this is something likely to be cut. :(

One thing I'll be very sad not to see? Keats dropping his "Italian cuisine" out the window. :wink:

Another one would be Severn sketching his deathbed portrait of Keats. It could just be a very brief few moments on the screen, but it'd be nice to see a little bit of Severn both in his relationship with Keats and as an artist.

Oh! And some little tiff between Keats and Fanny. . . some point where she goes off to a party without him, knowing that he doesn't approve.

The list goes on and on. If only the world were perfect and you could fit all these things in a 2-hour (would we be so lucky to get a little more, please pretty please?!) feature-length film!

A 10 hour miniseries on HBO was my vision for this project :wink:
