Description
Mr. Bennett: "An unhappy alternative is before you, Elizabeth. Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr. Collins. And I will never see you again if you do." A perfectly cast Greer Garson as Elizabeth Bennett and Laurence Olivier as Mr. Darcy team up as the sparring lead couple in this spot-on adaptation of Jane Austen's novel about five sisters seeking husbands in Regency England. When the movie premiered in 1940, the New York Times' Bosley Crowther proclaimed it "the most deliciously pert comedy of old manners, the most crisp and crackling satire in costume that we in this corner can remember ever having seen on the screen.... The whole thing has been accomplished through a steady flow of superlative wit—most of it out of the novel and some of it supplied by Aldous Huxley and Jane Murfin—which puts a snapper on almost every scene; and also through a consistently artful inventiveness of detail and a keen appreciation of the subtleties of Miss Austen's characters." Sumptuously photographed, the film received the full MGM treatment; its handsome sets earned it the Oscar for Best Art Direction, and even after repeated viewings, the film never wears out its welcome.
