The latest series of Civil War movies since the 1990s have been pretty sexless with a few exceptions. Gettysburg
were sausage fests while Gods and Generals
only had Kali Rocha as Mrs. Jackson. Earlier films have injected some "sex" by use of the obligatory lingerie scene. The wardrobe department usually got the 1860s underwear wrong either by making it too "foofy", comical, or trying to make it look like modern lingerie.
Gone with the Wind
made the clothing look funny but was close.
You have to give the wardrobe dept. credit for giving Vivian Leigh drawers in a scene where they were not seen.
with Susan Hayward and Julie London went for humor and over did the decorations.
Rain Tree County
went the way of making Elizabeth Taylor's costume look like modern corsetry.
The Horse Soldiers
had Constance Tower in a similar fitted top.
You had Senta Berger's 1960s slip/chemise in Major Dundee.
Jewell looked pretty good in Ride With The Devil
but her World War One era chemise needed some sleeves.
As did Jody Foster in Sommersby.
This outfit was plan ugly in Little Women.
Former dancer Mary Tyler Moore was great as the "pleasingly plump" Mary Lincoln but why is Mrs. Keckly sewing stuff onto her hoopskirt?
The North and The South
featured underwear that came from "Holly's of Fredericksburg" as the joke went among reenactors back when this mini-series came out.
Patrick Swayze's slutty sister in the series sported black and red lingerie in different scenes as well. A sure sign that she was EVIL.
Natalie Portman's poor farm woman chemise was good in Cold Mountain.
I don't think Cameron Diaz wasn't wearing much more that a chemise in Gangs of New York.
