"EMMA" (1972) Review

I am aware of at least four adaptation of Jane Austen's 1815 novel, "Emma". But I have noticed that the one adaptation that rarely attracts the attention of the novelist's ファン is the 1972 BBC miniseries, "EMMA".

Directed によって John Glenister and adapted によって Denis Constanduros, "EMMA" told the story of the precocious younger daughter of a wealthy landowner that resides near the village of Highbury. Emma Woodhouse imagines herself to be naturally gifted matchmaker, following her self-declared success in arranging a 愛 match between her governess and Mr. Weston, a village widower....

"SENSE AND SENSIBILITY" (1981) Review

Jane Austen's 1811 novel, "Sense and Sensibility" has been a お気に入り with her modern-day fans. The novel has produced at least three テレビ and two movie adaptations and a literary parody. However, this review is about the seven-part, 1981 BBC adaptation.

Directed によって Rodney Bennett and adapted によって Alexander Baron and Denis Constanduros, "SENSE AND SENSIBILITY" starred Irene Richards and Tracey Childs as the two main protagonists - sisters Elinor and Marianne Dashwood. The story focused on the sisters' attempts to find happiness in the tightly structured...

"NORTHANGER ABBEY" (1986) Review

Most movie and テレビ adaptations of Jane Austen’s novels are either highly acclaimed または perhaps even liked によって ファン and critics alike. I can only think of two または three adaptations that have been dismissed them. And one of them happened to be the 1986 A&E Network/BBC adaptation of Austen’s 1817 novel, "Northanger Abbey".

Adapted によって Maggie Wadey, "NORTHANGER ABBEY" follows the experiences of seventeen-year-old ゴシック novel aficionado, Catherine Morland, who is invited によって her parents’ friends, Mr. and Mrs. Allen, to accompany them on a visit to Bath,...

MARY AND HENRY CRAWFORD IN "MANSFIELD PARK"

Every time I read an 記事 または review about Jane Austen's 1814 novel, "MANSFIELD PARK", the authors of these 記事 always コメント on the unpopularity of the novel's leading character, Fanny Price. I could say the same about most 記事 and reviews on the novel's テレビ and movie adaptations. Time and again, both critics and others claim that most Austen ファン have a low opinion of Fanny Price. At the same time, these same commentators like to point out the popularity of the novel's antagonists, Henry and Mary Crawford.

The first time I had...

"CONSEQUENCES OF LUST"

All of Jane Austen's completed novels were first published during the Regency decade between 1810 and 1819, leaving present-day ファン to celebrate the 200th anniversaries of each novel during this decade (2010-2019). Among those novels are "PRIDE AND PREJUDICE", now celebrating its bicentennial anniversary and "MANSFIELD PARK", which will be doing the same 次 year.

"PRIDE AND PREJUDICE" told the story of five daughters of an English landowner named Mr. Bennet, whose wife is desperate to find husbands for them all. The novel was written from the viewpoint of Mr. Bennet's...

"PRIDE AND PREJUDICE" (1940) Review

There have been at least eight adaptations of "Pride and Prejudice", Jane Austen's 1813 novel. But as far as I know, only four are well known または constantly mentioned によって many of the novelist's present-day fans. And one of the four happens to be the movie adapted in 1940 によって Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

Directed によって Robert Z. Leonard, "PRIDE AND PREJUDICE" told the story of the five unmarried daughters of a 19th century English landowner and the efforts of his shrill wife to get them married before his estate is inherited によって a distant male cousin. For years, this version...

"PRIDE AND PREJUDICE" (1980) Review

As many ファン of Jane Austen must know, there have been several screen and テレビ adaptations of the author’s most celebrated novel, "Pride and Prejudice", published in 1813. I usually come across at least five of those versions – including the six-part BBC adaptation that aired in the U.S. in 1980. The miniseries was adapted によって Fay Weldon and directed によって Cyril Coke.

Only someone unfamiliar with Austen’s story would not know that "PRIDE AND PREJUDICE" told the story of Elizabeth Bennet, the second-born daughter of an English gentleman and landowner...

SOCIAL CLASS AND THE BENNET FAMILY IN "PRIDE AND PREJUDICE"

Considering how long I have been a ファン of Jane Austen’s 1813 novel, "PRIDE AND PREJUDICE" and its numerous テレビ and movie adaptations, I am surprised that I have never considered something about its heroine, Elizabeth Bennet, and her family. Ever since I have been 読書 numerous 記事 about the novel and its adaptations, I have noticed that many have labeled the Bennet family as members of the middle-class または the upper middle-class in Regency England. And it finally occurred to me that many of these ファン were in error....

Man considers himself the creator of all, even god for that matter! He thinks of himself as the master of his destiny, the controller of all events and the ultimate doer!

All of this is completely true! But one thing goes missing in this theory. It is the fact that man, to do everything that he does, has to fall upon something for motivation and inspiration.

Different strokes for different folks may be the case here, but one stroke that stands common is movies. Accept it または deny it, 映画 play a very important role in motivating a man. Not only do they motivate us, they also assist us in developing...

"PERSUASION" (1971) Review

This adaptation of Jane Austen’s 1818 novel turned out to be the first of the old Jane Austen テレビ adaptations that the BBC aired during the 1970s and 80s. Produced and directed によって Howard Baker, and adapted によって Julian Mitchell; this two-part miniseries starred Ann Firbanks and Bryan Marshall.

As many ファン of Austen’s novel would know, ”PERSUASION” told the story of Anne Elliot, the middle daughter of a vain and spendthrift baronet, who finds herself reunited with her former finance, a Naval officer of lesser birth named Frederick Wentworth. Eight years...

"PERSUASION" (1995) Review

Twenty-four years after the BBC aired its 1971 version of Jane Austen’s 1818 novel, ”Persuasion”; and twelve years before ITV aired its adaptation; Columbia Pictures released its own version on British テレビ and in movie theaters across the U.S. The movie went on to become highly acclaimed, the winner of a BAFTA TV award for Best Single Drama, and regarded as the definitive version of Austen’s novel.

"MANSFIELD PARK" (1983) Review

Long before Patricia Rozema wrote and directed her 1999 adaptation of "Mansfield Park", Jane Austen’s 1814 novel, the BBC aired its own adaptation some sixteen years earlier. This one came in the form of a six-part miniseries and is regarded によって many Austen ファン as the definitive screen version of the novel.

"MANSFIELD PARK" told the story of Fanny Price, the oldest daughter of a former Royal Navy officer, who is sent によって her parents to live with her wealthy aunt and uncle-in-law, Sir Thomas and Lady Bertram, at their estate called Mansfield Park, during the early...

"SENSE AND SENSIBILITY" (1971) Review

For some reason, I still find it hard to believe that until recently, very few people were aware that the first adaptation of Jane Austen's 1811 novel, "Sense and Sensibility", dated as far back as 1971. After all, people have been aware of other Austen adaptations during this same period または earlier. Even the Wikipedia site fails to mention it, except in connection with one of the cast members. What was about this four-part miniseries that eluded so many Austen fans?


In "SENSE AND SENSIBILITY", a wealthy landowner named Mr. Dashwood dies, leaving his two...
