I watched the old school Pride and Predjudice today – the really really old school one, with Greer Garson and Laurence Olivier. Normally I avoid this film because it is possibly the worst ever remake of a book. That said I really enjoyed it today. Even with the Victorian costuming and befuddled plot lines, Greer Garson makes an amazingly pretty and witty Lizzy Bennet.

Weird, hey! It’s not even the same story but those scenes are filmed in very similar ways.
