Well, my plan to write a substantial post was undermined by having more work to do on a conference paper I'm presenting tomorrow. Not that I've forgotten about the Brontes. I have nothing else to console me in the rare moments when I am not studying. Here are two more clips from the archives.
Believe it or not but I can identify the very frame in this clip which first caught my interest, and led me to read the novel!
And this is just precious. I think I must be the only person on the planet who does not hate this adaptation with a passion but I have an extremely high tolerance for bad adaptations. However, if you think about it, all they did was modernise the novel by taking out anything remotely troubling and adding a puppy. Everyone loves puppies. This is the 1934 version- the first talkie Jane Eyre.
