Why do you confide in me like this? What are you and she to me? Do you think because I am poor and plain I have no feelings? I promise you... if God had gifted me with wealth and beauty, I should make it as hard for you to leave me now, as it is for me to leave you. But He did not. Yet my spirit can address yours, as if both had passed through the grave and stood before Him equal.

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.
