Finally an Austen we Love!

image image

Starting this Sunday, the Jane Austen Series on the Newly Titled Masterpiece CLASSIC! is showing the “definitive” version of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE.

Thank goodness!  After these past few weeks of tomfoolery with the plots and subplots and what have you , it will be a delightful pleasure to luxuriate in the faithful interpretation of this production.

Although I do Love Garson and Olivier in their very flawed production – you can just sense they are straining to make some sense of it – still they are a most well matched pair as of course are our two in the photo above!

This novel is my top favorite of all of Ms. Austen’s and I love them all.  I have much in common with the heroine – and more than most readers!  (can you guess?)

Its the one book I read every year and of which I never tire!

One Response to Finally an Austen we Love!

    yes this is THE one as far as I am concerned. I very much enjoyed the film recently made as it emphasised much more the difference in status and money between the Bennetts and the Darcy/Bingleys but very irritated with the portrayal of bingly as a gormless idiot who Jane would not marry in a million years. We all know the wet shirt moment is sublime but that is just a small part of the perfection of this series. they are showing it here as well and I dare not watch it as I shall then be hooked and have to sit up late and watch it all over again. Needless to say I have the DVD permanently to hand…
