I always resisted seeing this version because of the misguided costuming (although the novel is set during the Regency era, the costumes are 1830s). However, I finally buckled down and watched and I have to say I quite enjoyed it, mostly for Greer Garson’s take on Elizabeth Bennet. It is definitely of its period, however– costume wise, it’s 1830s on acid (totally overblown hair, dresses, trim, etc.). Darcy is made much more palatable, and his romance with Elizabeth is made much more mushy. Nevertheless, worth a watch.
