Re: Coincidences related to Les Mis

Oh yes, they taunt and taunt the English...oh wait that sounds more like Monty Python now. :D

Now I wonder how the National Guard would have reacted to the students throwing ducks at them...

But it was funny to see everyone's favorite inkeeper doing what he can do best-betray someone. ;)

Re: Any recommendations?

Of the ones I've seen(58, 82, 98, 2000) I still hold the 58 version to be the only legitimate one, although they did that thing with Javert sen and jun. I mean....geeez...they even gave Enjolras his beloved double barrel rifle! The barricade scenery is awesome. Bourvil is the best Thenardier on scre...

Re: Cuts and lyric variants

Does anyone have more information about the "chase sequence" cut from the Barbican production? In regards to lost scenes, this is the one big mystery for me. It was placed between the Waltz of Treachery and Stars, thus explaining the setting of Stars before Look Down.

Random videos

Couldn't find a suitable topic on here. Anyways, Lego projects are great, so here's one a friend and I made. We are big fans of Eddie Izzard(Death Star Cantina anyone?) and when we heard that skip we had to visualize it with Lego:

Re: Favourite recording?

Let's see, I got or heard:
OFC
OLC
OBC
CSR
TAC
25ATC
PRC 1991
Denmark 1992
Vienna 1988
Duisburg 1996

And my fav is...the CSR. Despite its flaws cast- and musicalwise it is wonderful. And listened to on a proper sound system it is amazing.

Popularity around the globe

Some countries seem mad about Hugo's book, some rather indifferent. At least that's my impression judging from the reception of the musical, the movie versions made or bits about the novel I picked up through the years. Yet I couldn't find something like sale figures or loads of quotes to undermine ...

Re: Literature about barricades

2010 is quite new indeed. ;) One of the appendices is a database of 155 barricade events, from 157X to 1898. I was fortunate enough to know one more and told him so via email, which he encourages in the book. Also he answered some questions I had. @C.Feuilly: Have you tried interlending? Many librar...
