Like the arrows she launches at an archery target during an elegant lawn party, Elizabeth Bennet’s wit is pointed and unerring. “If you want to be really refined, you have to be dead,” she says, skewering the imperious airs of her hosts. Jane Austen’s timeless 1813 novel of unlikely romance is richly adapted in this lavish Academy Award® winner.* Greer Garson portrays spirited Elizabeth, one of five Bennet sisters hoping for matrimony. Laurence Olivier plays Darcy, whose arrival at a nearby estate sets maiden hearts aflutter. But first impressions can mean so very much. Elizabeth and Darcy find reasons to view each other with disdain, setting in motion a velvet struggle of Pride and Prejudice, perception and reality, forgiveness and love. You’ll be irresistibly caught up in it.<br />

Apparently the original negative does not survive. Will be waiting for Mr. Harris's few words about this favorite film. Counting on the archive to work miracles .

So thrilled about this one! While the 1995 BBC adaptation is my probably my favourite and certainly more faithful to Austen's book, this 1940 MGM confection is so charming. I was hoping an announcement wouldn't be long in coming after reading reports of a sparkling new master on HBOMax!

I just can't get enough of Greer Garson. And this one (along with Random Harvest) is one of my favorites! Thank you, WA!
I'd do back flips if WAC released The Valley Of Decision on blu ray but Pride And Prejudice is one of Garson's best.

Glad to hear from another Random Harvest lover. I love it; my wife can't stand it! It's another movie I can only view if she's out ... along with Carousel and South Pacific.
Random Harvest is one of my wife's favorites. She'll watch it anytime, any day given the chance. It might be LeRoy's best film after I'm a Fugitive from a Chain Gang.
Pride and Prejudice is one her favorites as well. Bringing it back on topic.

Nicely brought back. Yes, I'll be after Pride and Prejudice as well. But my wife seems to find anything with GG in it totally tiresome. Strange, aren't they, our partners. ....

Can anyone tell me why Amazon is saying this is Pat and Mike?

It was like that from the day I added the preorder. I figured Amazon would eventually catch on and fix it

Random Harvest was such a huge hit at Radio City when it opened as the Christmas show in '42 it played until March of '43. LeRoy in his autobio said the Music Hall's manager told him it could have continued to play for months if MGM hadn't wanted to get it into wider distribution. Well it would have been interesting if it had played as the Easter show as well.
Holden Caulfield tells about going to see it there in Catcher in the Rye. Suffice it to say he found it pretty silly stuff. He also didn't like the stage show or audience.
