Quite enjoyable even if a bit too rushed.
11 July 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While Studio One's "Jane Eyre" is far from perfect, neither are most versions. Although British, Rochester is played by an American without a British accent (Charlton Heston)---but this is also the case with two very famous versions which starred Orson Welles and George C. Scott. Also, like almost every version I have seen, the most important subplot involving the missionary is completely omitted--making Jane's return to Rochester seem a bit confusing. My advice is to read the book...and watch a movie or TV version. Despite its limitations, the live teleplay manages to cram the story into only about an hour--and considering it was done LIVE, it is a wonderful look into the insane world of live programming in the early days of television. Overall, not bad at all and quite enjoyable...and a bit touching at the end.
