Good for Hollywood
Like most early Hollywood films based on classic novels, the script alters the novel considerably, but not as much as much as they usually were. As it happens, even with the changes this is a charming and endearing film.
Mary Boland as Mrs. Bennet, Edna May Oliver as Lady Catherine De Burgh, and Melville Cooper as Mr. Collins eat the scenery in their respective roles. They give some of the best supporting player performances that I ever remember seeing in early films. They manage to steal scenes from the greatest actor of the 20th century and making him look good at the same time!
Maureen O’Sullivan is charming as Jane, but of course Greer Garson is fabulous as Elizabeth even if she doesn’t fit my idea of Elizabeth.
I recommend this movie highly as a nice addition to any classical movie collection.
She has pride, he has prejudice.
What’s a social climbing mother to do when she has all girls, none of them eligible to inherit a family fortune? Find them all rich husbands, that’s what! The problem is that once an eligible rich bachelor (Laurence Olivier) moves into their pretty ritzy neighborhood, all of the other mothers are out to do the same thing. Elizabeth (Greer Garson) is perhaps the best catch of the five daughters, and when she catches the eye of handsome Mr. Darcy, a misunderstanding threatens to keep them apart. She overheard what she felt was a slight against the middle class girls ogling him, and when he asks her for a dance, she politely declines. But there’s lots of stars to cross in this period romantic comedy of manners (based upon Jane Austen’s most famous novel) and the clever Olivier has a few tricks up his sleeve.
When your mother or husband is Mary Boland, there’s lots of unintentional henpecking going on. Just that voice alone gives the impression of imperiousness as she talks and talks. Moving from the train to Reno (in “The Women”) to the English countryside, she is a determined mother, and with daughters that besides Garson include Anne Rutherford, Maureen O’Sullivan, Heather Angel and Marsha Hunt, she has her hands full. Papa Edmund Gwenn (pre-Santa Claus) makes one thing clear to Garson when mama insists she’ll never speak to her again if she refuses to marry their wealthy distant relative (Melville Cooper): He’ll never speak to her again if she does!
The opulent costumes of the period and witty dialog of the classy kind make this an enjoyable romp into “Downton Abbey” territory. And when Edna May Oliver makes her entrance as Olivier’s imperious “great lady” aunt, it’s as if Maggie Smith’s Lady Violet from that smash PBS/BBC series has taken a step back in time into corsets and bloomers rather than her early 20th Century matriarch. Even in her long two scenes, Oliver is guilty of theft: she steals every moment she is on screen. This is classic movie magic at its best and an absolute must.
