The French Lieutenants Woman

The French Lieutenant's Woman is a 1981 film directed by Karel Reisz and adapted by playwright Harold Pinter. It is based on the novel of the same title by John Fowles. The novel/film is set in Victorian era, and this posed a bit of an issue in the location where it was filmed.

Townsfolk in the English town of Lyme Regis where the movie was shot objected to the idea of their TV antennas being removed from their roofs in order to make the town's skyline appear Victorian again.

The film's producer did finally get his way though. He rented portable TV sets for everyone living in the town until filming was completed.
