Audience Reviews for Jane Eyre


Truncated version of the story that is strengthened by the ability of the leads.

Super Reviewer

Of all the "condensed" versions of 'Jane Eyre' I have seen (1944, 1949, 1957, 1970/1, 1996, 1997) this is currently my favourite even if the DVD quality is less than perfect. I have read that the orignal film was destroyed. What a mistake!
