    Good for the Collection

    While not the best film version of "Pride and Prejudice," the performances of Greer Garson and Sir Laurence Olivier are worth seeing. The best remains the BBC mini-series with Colin Firth. Or, if you don't have the time, watch the movie with Keira Knightly.

    Almost 4 Stars...but Not Quite.

    It was hard for me to decide between 3 and 4 stars, but I didn't base that on how accurate this adaptation is. Frankly, I think it's the least faithful to the novel, BUT it is much more enjoyable than the 1980 BBC version where the acting was very awkward and fake. I think Mr. Darcy wasn't nearly as snobby in this version as he should have been, but it was still enjoyable. The first time I watched it, I stopped it after 5 minutes because the costumes are just all wrong, but from what background reading I've been doing, I think they may have done that on purpose as some sort of war propaganda. To me, the most important thing is that they stay faithful to the spirit of the novel, and that was definately present in this version. Anyway, the music is goodthe acting (for that time) is good, and the overall plot was compressed in a way where it didn't take out any of the absolute essentials. Of course, I would have liked to see Lizzy visiting Pemberley, but oh well. Overall, it's okay, but my favorite P&P adaptation will always be the 1995 A&E version with Colin Firth.

    Not 100% Faithful to The Book But Still Good!

    I'm a Pride and Prejudice fan and though I think the Colin Fith/Jennifer Ehle version is better I also liked this old black and wite vesion that starred Laurence Olivier and Greer Garson. Yes it's true that the costumes are all wrong and are more Gone With The Wind Civil War period instead of Regency and they made Lady Catherine De Bourg into an old softy where in the book and other movie adaptations she is a nasty vindictive snob but despite that it is still a very good movie and Laurence Olivier made a great Darcy. Very dashing and Greer Garson was great too as was the rest of the cast! I'm so glad that this movie is finally coming out on a DVD made by a major studio. Now they need to put out a Good DVD for Jane Eyre starring Orson Welles and Joan Fontaine!

    Not that great...

    I was dissapointed with the decision to set the movie in the 1830's--no Regency style clothing! What *were* they thinking! Also, the movie left out several key scenes, such as the Gardiners and Darcy's letter, and they totally changed Lady Catherine's character. I think the movie failed to portray Jane and Elizabeth as the only sensible Bennets, and it totally failed to capture the essence of Jane Austen...the steady, rolling plot, the character development, etc. The movie's only saving points were Darcy and Mr. Bennet, who, out of all the characters in the movie, stayed the most true to the novel.
