A big thank you to dear friend Robin over at Passing Fancies alerting me to the fact that Dorian Gray was finally available on Netflix!
Tons of Pre-Raphaelite references/visuals; Sybil Vane's portrayal of Ophelia in the theatre, to her lovely long red hair and ivory skin; Leighton's God Speed in her dressing room. Yes, I know, the novel pre-dates the painting by a decade, but still it works for the visual tone of the movie. Perhaps that was the director's nod to Oscar Wilde? I suppose we have to make allowances for the art of storytelling and if I had a dime for every time one of the unicorn tapestries appears in an early "medieval" movie, I'd be a wealthy woman.
