Jane Eyre: No, sir.
Edward Rochester: Still, I'm surprised you've not been asked.
Jane Eyre: I didn't say I had not been asked, sir.
Edward Rochester: I see. That's good, Jane, you should be married.
Jane Eyre: Yes, sir, I think so. And so should you. You can't be choosey, sir, any more than I.

Best Adaptation
22 May 2004 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

No wonder I think this is the best adaptation of Jane Eyre - I didn't realize that Delbert Mann directed it until I read it on this website. I loved this film - if memory serves me it was a made for t.v. movie. George C. Scott and Susannah York were perfectly cast. I also remember a very touching and well acted death scene between young Jane Eyre portrayed by Sara Gibson and Helen Burns portrayed by Rosalyn Landor. Jean Marsh was also good as Mrs. Rochester. The music was hauntingly beautiful. I am fortunate that I taped it when it reran on a cable movie channel several years ago. If you like the story and have the opportunity by all means watch this great version of a classic novel.
