Trivia According to Ann Rutherford, although the filmmakers were committed to begin shooting on a particular date, they discovered that Producer David O. Selznick had used every available reel of Technicolor film in existence to make Gone with the Wind (1939). Therefore, despite the lavish sets and opulent costumes, this movie had to be shot in black-and-white. See more »
Goofs When Mrs. Bennet is seen steaming open the letter to Jane from Caroline Bingley, the envelope is a modern day gummed envelope fit for stationery letters. The year the film takes place is 1815, letters would have been folded in and sealed with a wax seal. Gummed envelopes would not be invented for another 100 years; therefore it should have been impossible for Mrs. Bennett to steam open a letter that had been sealed with a wax seal. See more »
