If you love Jane Eyre, you'll hate this movie. Great liberties were taken with both the characters and the story line, which is totally diced up, scrambled and disjointed. It satisfied my desire to see the oldest available Jane Eyre movie, but left me more frustrated than the end of the Orson Wells version. It gets one star because NO star wasn't a rating choice.

This is my least favorite film version of Jane Eyre but with that said I still enjoyed watching it. It is one of the oldest fim adaptations of Jane Eyre and is black and white and from 1934 and directed by William Christy Cabanne and stars Virginia Bruce as Jane Eyre and Colin Clive as Edward Rochester. Yes this movie takes liberties with the book. Jane is a tall beautiful blonde and Adele is a clutzy ditz with an annoying giggle and Young Jane Eyre comes across as more mean spirited than feisty but as a fan of old black and white movies I allowed myself to enjoy this version so if you like old movies and are able to watch this without constantly comparing it to the book and the other more faithful movie adaptations you just may enjoy this. I know I did! The movie is only 60 minutes (that's just 1 hour and 2 minutes) so it really doesn't take that much time to view it! Despite the liberties I enjoyed the story and the spirit of the book does come through!

This movie is a complete abomination to the book, absolutely ridiculus, yet a little funny.Rochester dances, Jane sings, and even calls Mr. Brocklehurst an 'ugly old crocidile'! Also Jane is blonde and beautiful!? What? Bertha in this movie looks more plain and quakerish than Jane. And in the end, when Jane declares that she would never leave Mr.Rochester (or uncle Edward, as he is so often called in this film), he makes this really scrunchy cranky-pants face. He looks really annoyed that he has to spend the rest of his life with Jane Airhead. The only real redeeming factor in this movie is that little Adele falls into a vase, and it is terribly funny. Besides that, this film is complete heresy.
