4.8151 "Pride and Prejudice" - the Book, the Movie.
Too often, movie versions of great works of literature are not faithful to the book. Sometimes, directors "romanticize" the plot or change it around, diluting the original author's intent and making the viewing experience less enjoyable. Such did not happen to Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice", at least not in two versions - the 1940 movie starring Laurence Olivier and Greer Garson, and a 1995 serialized version that was made in England and shown on the BBC, as well as in this country. It is the latter I chose for this report on Austen's novel. I will show that it stayed with the book almost line for line and was a great success because of this. 5 pgs. Bibliography lists 3 sources.
