Pride and Prejudice (1940) Poster

Laurence Olivier: Mr. Darcy



  • Caroline Bingley : ...and her sisters Jane and Elizabeth were seen running down Market Street in an attempt to escape their disgrace. Isn't that exquisitely funny, Mr. Darcy?

    Mr. Darcy : Exquisitely. Just think how you would roar with laughter if it happened to yourself.

  • Mr. Darcy : Yes, she looks tolerable enough, but I am in no humor tonight to give consequence to the middle classes at play.

  • Mr. Darcy : I rather admired what you did this afternoon Miss Elizabeth. Your resentment of what you believe to be an injustice showed courage and loyalty. I could wish i might possess a friend who would defend me as ably as Mr. Wickham was defended today.

    Mr. Bennett : At this moment it's difficult to believe that you're so proud.

    Mr. Darcy : At this moment it's difficult to believe that you're so prejudiced.

  • Mr. Darcy : I have made the mistake of being honest with you.

    Elizabeth Bennet : Honesty is a greatly overrated virtue. Silence in this case would have been more agreeable.

  • Mr. Darcy : You must allow me to tell you how much I admire and love you.
