Which makes me wonder: which denomination is the traditional Rev. Green supposed to be? I've always assumed Catholic from the very traditional collar, but I suppose in that era (1920s - '40s, depending on the edition) Christian clergymen probably didn't dress very differently from one another. In my lifetime (briefly flitting between Methodist, Baptist, Episcopalian, and Catholic churches) I've seen the revered/minister/priest/whatever in anything from office casual wear to full robes depending on the service/denomination, but I don't believe the casual dress would have been acceptable any time before the '60s, if not later.Murder by Death wrote:Not for me. I don't know about the progressive church today, but in the era I picture Cluedo, the clergy always wear their vestments in social gatherings. The Al Smith dinner in NYC where everyone else is in formal wear, the clergy wears their vestments. Granted it's a catholic event, but this is a formal party hosted by Dr. Black, so I would assume similar decorum would apply.CluedoKid wrote:I notice they call Mr. Green as Reverend Green for their 86 version.
It makes me think, doesn't it make more sense that Reverend Green would attend Boddy/Black's party in a suit, and not in his clerical vestures?
I suppose Church of England or Catholic would be the most likely possibilities, given the general era of classic Cluedo games.
