I'd heard about this Nancy Drew movie trailer on the child_lit listserv but only got around to watching it now.
I didn't know it was even possible to make Nancy, Bess, and George all blond.
All things considered, it could be worse. It does cause me to reconsider whether or not I should keep pushing for them to film Kiki Strike.
The funny thing is that the "Get a Clue" tag line of the film is also the theme of New York state's 2007 Summer Reading Program.
Ten points for not giving Nancy cleavage in the movie poster, by the way. As you can see, I'm grasping at straws here. Maybe we should all consider what DAJ on the child_lit listserv mentioned in conjunction with this film:
In general, filmed Nancys have been more feminine than their print counterparts. Ilana Nash devotes a chapter of her _American Sweethearts_ to an excellent analysis of the changes between the series and the Warner Brothers movies and the way they weakened Nancy's character. The 1970s TV series didn't stop with just mangling Nancy, but also managed to conflate Bess and George into one person.I wonder if Borge/Gess was blond.
