First published in 1813, Jane Austen’s much beloved novel, Pride and Prejudice, has been adapted and imitated numerous times. Over the years it has spawned television programs, films, plays and a seemingly endless cycle of sequels, prequels and what-if alternatives. Among these:

The 1940 version of Pride and Prejudice with Greer Garson as Elizabeth and Lawrence Olivier as Darcy. This clip from youtube shows the scene where Elizabeth visits Charlotte at Rosings Park.
