Movie Info

This version of the Charlotte Bronte classic is the first to use sound. The story closely follows the book as it chronicles the romantic travails of a troubled orphan girl who grows up to be a governess in love with her employer who returns her affections. She has finally found happiness. Alas, her happiness is short-lived as she learns that her love has locked his crazy wife in a remote wing of the house. The distraught governess flees and gets engaged to a new man. Just before they marry, she learns that her true love's house has burned down, immolating his wife and leaving him nearly blind. Without hesitation she returns to him and romantic bliss ensues.

Audience Reviews for Jane Eyre

½

This was not a good adaption. It was very abrupt and they made a lot of poor changes from the book.

Not the best version of the story, but worth watching if you're a fan of Charlotte Bronte's writing.

The first sound version of the very frequently filmed story. Very bland rendition, stiffly acted and uninspiring. The Joan Fontaine version is much better.
