By episode 4 or 5 it was scaring the life out of me!
24 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was 9 or 10 when I first watched this version. I was OK with the first episodes and in fact the sight of the mad lady creeping around Thornfield in the dead of night was at first quite fascinating. I remember the eerie music and only seeing her feet or the candlestick she was holding. But it was when she enters Jane's bedroom and one sees her for the first time and she tears up the wedding veil that really scared me and I felt quite frightened when I went to bed for a few nights even when my mother and father were decorating right outside my bedroom door! I managed to persevere though and I watched it again when it was repeated a few months later.

I wonder how this 1956 serial would come over today?
