Working Title: Hair of Gold: From YKTTW
Goldfritha: This trope is about blond hair as a short-handed for a specific kind of character. I have therefore removed the comic Blondie and the doll Barbie, which both have blond hair but don't use it as a short hand for this.
: A couple things on the Disney Cinderella. (A) What exactly does "titian" mean? The only other place I saw that used was describing Pippi Longstocking
in the Swedish/German film adaptation, which I might describe as a kind of coppery-blonde. By contrast, in my Platinum edition DVD, Cinderella's hair has the faintest red tint to it, but nowhere near as yellow as The Merch
. (B) Unrelated to the hair, but this same Platinum edition still has Cindy's
dress as silver, not the blue seen on all the toys. I guess my real question is "Which version does this 'purist' editor have that is so radically different from the original?"
