When looking over the results for the favorite movie adaptation of Pride and Prejudice I noticed that the votes for ‘Other’ were all for the 1980 BBC version with Elizabeth Garvie.
In case you are like me and have completely missed this version here’s some information:
It was a five part miniseries staring Elizabeth Garvie as Elizabeth Bennet and David Rintoul as Mr. Darcy.
It was broadcast here in the States in 1981 as part of PBS Masterpiece Theatre.
This was the fifth (we all know the sixth) time the BBC has made a version of the novel.
