Rating: 4.5/5 -- For pure charm and romantic diversion, for bubbling and wholesome life, we most heartily recommend this exquisite comedy about the elegant young gentleman who was proud and the beautiful young lady who was prejudiced. Full Review

Typically overstuffed MGM prestige product (1940), but one that came out surprisingly well, with a minimum of Eng. Lit. posturing and some elegance of design. Full Review

Rating: 4.5/5 -- Although the satire is slightly reduced and coarsened and the period advanced in order to use more flamboyant costumes, the spirit is entirely in keeping with Austen's sharp, witty portrait of rural 19th century social mores. Full Review

Product Description:

This excellent screen adaptation of Jane Austen's 1813 novel follows a provincial family's struggles to marry off five daughters in 19th-century England. Greer Garson (MRS. MINIVER) stars as heroine Elizabeth Bennett, while Laurence Olivier (REBECCA) plays Mr. Darcy, the new arrival who attracts both Elizabeth's interest and her ire. PRIDE AND PREJUDICE earned an Academy Award nomination for Best (Black-and-White) Interior Decoration.

Description by Warner Home Video:

Pride and Prejudice
Like the arrows she launches at an archery target during an elegant lawn party, Elizabeth Bennet's wit is pointed and unerring. "If you want to be really refined, you have to be dead," she says, skewering the imperious airs of her hosts. Jane Austen's timeless 1813 novel of unlikely romance is richly adapted in this lavish Academy Award' winner.* Greer Garson portrays spirited Elizabeth, one of five Bennet sisters hoping for matrimony. Laurence Olivier plays Darcy, whose arrival at a nearby estate sets maiden hearts aflutter. But first impressions can mean so very much. Elizabeth and Darcy find reasons to view each other with disdain, setting in motion a velvet struggle of Pride and Prejudice, perception and reality, forgiveness and love. You'll be irresistibly caught up in it.

Plot Synopsis:

From the classic novel by Jane Austen about the morals and mores of the class system in early Georgian England.
The intelligent and spirited Elizabeth Bennet is one of 5 daughters -- which, during that era, meant trouble: because women cannot inherit, upon her father's death her family's home will become the property of their nearest male relative. Only marriage, preferably to someone wealthy, can ensure her security. But the proud young lady instantly takes offense when Mr. Darcy, a promising newcomer in town, doesn't seem quite admiring enough, and she spurns his advances.
Slowly and painfully, Elizabeth realizes her error, but not before it seems she has lost him forever...
