Plot Summary

  • Mr. and Mrs. Bennet have five unmarried daughters, and Mrs. Bennet is especially eager to find suitable husbands for them.

But pride, prejudice, and misunderstandings all combine to complicate their relationships and to make happiness difficult.

  • I suppose if you had never read the book this might be a film of light froth, but why script writers chose to ignore Jane Austen's witty prose and plot to insert unwanted scenes and mess with the action can only be explained by Hollywood in the 40s. Presumably no one else has read the book in the USA? Appalling!

    - Written by Margaret Ingham
