: Clabert, you're a lifesaver! Again, you've outdone yourself. As far as Alexandria being pregnant, I personally don't think so. Granted, I haven't seen the DVD, and my 19" TV hardly does anything justice, but a "thicker waistline" may have been somewhat of a necessity on the frontier. These women worked their butts off just to survive, and some muscle would have certainly accumulated. On the other hand, having children certainly took part of the workload off the parents' shoulders, so maybe she was. It would seem to me, however, that if she was, it was probably an accident. By which I mean, the actress herself was pregnant and it showed up a little in the movie. If Michael Mann had wanted to portray a pregnant woman, chances are he would have portrayed a nine-months-pregnant woman, for dramatic effect. It would make the "Ottawa, two Francais" seem even more evil.
: Thanks again, Clabert. You're my hero.
Possibly you are right in that the actress who played Alexandria was pregnant, but women who have had babies know - and spot, these things! That 'thickened waistline' was just a teensy bit more rounded (think 'bump' here) and a mite higher than a waistline normally lies. I think it was well camouflaged with that chemise and over-coat but - I think it was there!
In the 'Cameron's Cabin' scene when she stands sideways on, there is just that suggestion of the high, slighly rounded waist. It caught my eye and I had to check again, when watching the DVD as I hadn't spotted it before on my video. And I thought - well, something ELSE that is seen with better 'imaging'.
Well, perhaps I am wrong, but having experienced it twice myself, the memory of a sadly distorted 'figure' lingers! :0(
