Not only that... Ava's waistline, but then again no actress can come close to that of Elisabeth; and I think Elisabeth had her own kind of sexual attraction, but that she was afraid of crossing lines.

Walk Away Renee - Left Banke

Seems like someone could ( ;) ) do a very nice video about Crown Prince Rudolph and loss -- and his responses to those repeated losses using this song.

As my little girl always says ~~ that would be sooooo awesome!  

I doubt it should stretch your versatility too much though since I Love all your videos.   Just watched "The Life Before Her Eyes" and as usual it was the absolute best too.  

Here's another version that might have better vocals for "Walk Away Renee"?   I'm not sure, I like both of them -- the song always reminds me of my brother.

Another Empress Charlotte, not as beautiful as Bette Davis...
She's Sibylle Binder in "Juarez and Maximilian". 1930

I am back here:p

I promise I will get the musicals online as soon as I find the time... But I have another surprise:p

The first spoken movie on Elisabeth, which is quite true to history, is in my hands... I'll first do subtitles on this one and try to post it. It is in fact the one mentioned and discussed ages ago, from the 1930's.
The story is quite simple = We have missed a portion of the story as the movie starts shortly before Rudolf's birth, who is after his birth taken away from her, after that Elisabeth flees from the court and years later, when she hears her son is about to be married she returns and asks Franz to reconsider, who does not want her to meddle with politics, she fears the couple - like them - is not meant to be. When Rudolf is married he runs away in parties and women and Stephanie is left alone. Franz is informed that his son asked for an annulment behind his back and forces him to end things with Mary. Elisabeth has a conversation with a desperate Stephanie and on her behalf talks with Rudolf - impossible in reality - and she too asks Rudolf to end the affair, which he now promises her. At Mayerling Rudolf tells Mary they won't be married and there is only one way for them, so they die and when Elisabeth is told - true to history here - she informs Franz who is heartbroken. Years later Elisabeth has fled from public life, once again, and is still in mourning for her son. In Geneva she is eventually assassinated - this scene is actually recorded where it happened, in Geneva - and her final words are fictive here, as she says she does not want any goodbyes(this is in the hotel, after she is carried in... She wasn't even awake in reality).

Overall a nice film, too short for my liking, which covers most of her personal life but leaves out her one political triumph.

Peter Sehr and Marie Noelle’s Ludwig II began shooting last week on the shores of the Starnberger See near Munich with the Romanian-born actor Sabin Tambrea as the young, idealistic Ludwig heading an impressive cast boasting the crème de la crème of German actors, including Sebastian Schipper (as an older Ludwig), Hannah Herzsprung (as Sisi), Edgar Selge (Richard Wagner), and Uwe Ochsenknecht (Prince Luitpold)

Hmm...looks like she might make a good Sisi! She looks a bit like Romy Schneider.
