    That's great karma. I forgot about that scene. Thanks! The bubbles stay until someone of import tells me to lose them.

    Nikee - In the case of SN, I'm glad they opted for bubbles.

    i think just having someone fetch you hot water, over and over to fill a bathtub is luxury enough.

    bubbles in movies are just to cover the boobies and such things.

    1900 Mr. Bubbles?

    Ahh, the challenge of period scripts...

    Anyone know if foam/bubble baths were around in the US ca. 1900?

    Sounds like a silly detail, but I want to show my protag living (fraudulently) for the first time in the lap of luxury. I wrote the scene so that she's buried in a bubble bath, sipping champagne in a fancy hotel. My problem's with the bubbles. I can't find any evidence that foam or bubble baths were around before the 1930's. Seems like at least the French would've had them before then. Any period films of this era where bubble baths were used?

    I suppose I could go without the bubbles, show more skin, but the bubbles (champagne and bath) seem so, um... fun.

    Thanks.
Working...
