It would have to be. Couldn't be because of Mr.Brent, who always seemed rather pedestrian to me.

Farrell was a very distinguished looking older man. The ones that have really good genes always come out looking that way. Great photos!

Re: Pride and Prejudice

"Have you ever read anything by Barbara Pym, Brenda? In Britain she is known as the "20th Century Jane Austen" (she wrote most of her books in the 1950s and 60s, and passed away in the early 80s). Pym is one of my very favorite writers." I have not read any of her books. I'll hav...

Re: Pride and Prejudice

From the snippets I've seen, I agree with everyone here in their judgment. Anne, I have the DVD of the miniseries on P & P. It can be found here. http://www.amazon.com/Pride-Prejudice-Special-E-1996/dp/B00005MP58/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1267060274&sr=8-1 You won't regret seeing ...

Re: Pride and Prejudice

I've seen the film version with Laurence Olivier, I remember enjoying it but nowhere near as much as the 1995 BBC version, it really captures the essence of Jane Austen's novel, I've no desire to see any other version, the 1995 version is perfection. I absolutely love Jane Austen, I've read all her...

Pride and Prejudice

Does anyone else love Jane Austen as much as I do? This scene from the 1995 version of "Pride and Prejudice" is my favorite. Elizabeth really gives Mr. Darcy what for, and he deserved it. His pride was one of his faults. As I am going to be seeing Chatsworth this summer, and it's supposed ...

Re: WHAT SILENTS & PRE-CODES HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

I like Thomas Meighan, he was as well matched with Gloria Swanson as he was with Mary Pickford. He died in 1936, never having cracked talkies, his last role was as the father in Peck's Bad Boy. It's a shame he's not remembered today. I like Meighan because he was a very naturalistic actor-never ove...

Re: The Good News Thread

I think I remember seeing it in the older version of "Pride and Prejudice." It quite took my breath away! Bruce has never been either, and he likes history. The current dowager duchess was quite beautiful in her youth, and I'm sure she still is. I remember reading that she likes Elvis and ...
