Lorna Doone pics Part II

Once again, pictures of Carver seem to outnumber pictures of John. :D Sorry folks, I guess Carver's just more photogenic than John. :P I have dozens of other screenshots of Carver which I have [with great difficulty, after much deliberation] chosen not to include here. Otherwise it would have been a veritable Carverfest. . .

John and Captain Stickles wait for the attack. . . 

Carver Doone. . .



The reason for the Doone's quarrel with the Ridd family - Lorna Doone. . .


John confronts Carver



The aftermath of the attack. Ruth Huckaback tends to Captain Stickle's wounds; the rest of the Ridds and Captain Stickle's men escape mostly uninjured.


 

John and Tom Faggus repair the barn that was burnt in the attack.


Carver makes another appearance. . .




Back in Doone Valley.


 


Tom says goodbye to Annie. Can you believe that the actor who plays Tom Faggus also plays Colonel Fitzwilliam in P&P95?!! I could hardy believe it when I found out. I would never have recognised him.
 



Part III coming very soon. . . this is so much fun. :D

Poor little Ruth! :-( In the book it hints about a certain someone for Ruth - let me see if I can find the passage. . . here it is:

"Ruth Huckaback is not married yet; although upon Uncle Reuben's death she came into all his property. . .

I know a man even worthy of Ruth; and though she is not very young, he loves her, as I love Lorna. More and more I hope, and think, that in the end he will win her; and I do not mean to dance again, except at dear Ruth's wedding; if a floor can be found strong enough."

So Ruth does get her happily ever after, although they apparently didn't have time to include it in the movie. :-)
