Description
An all-star cast - including Orson Welles, Joan Fontaine, Agnes Moorehead and Elizabeth Taylor - breathes magnificent life into this captivating 1944 film version of Charlotte Bronte's gothic romance novel. Adapted for the screen by Aldous Huxley, Robert Stevenson and John Houseman, and directed by Stevenson, this stirring film is the definitive version of the engrossing classic!

After spending her childhood in an orphanage, young Jane Eyre (Fontaine) becomes governess to the ward of an imposing older man named Edward Rochester (Welles). Ultimately, Jane's gentle influence forces Rochester to drop his foreboding veneer, and he proposes to her. But the discovery that Rochester is already married, and further, that his volatile wife is locked in the attic, prompts Jane to leave as a series of tragic events unfold in this riveting classic that also features Margaret O'Brien.

          Comments about this product:

          I have seen many versions of Jane Eyre over the years, and I always come back to this one. Joan Fontaine and Orson Welles give engaging and very believable performances. Even though I've seen this version at least 50 times, I am still moved to tears every time.

                I just love this movie with Joan Fontaine, it is a one I watch over and over again. Great Black & White film - classic story line. It falls into my category of "rainy day movies" - where you are curled up under a warm blanket on the sofa and it is cold and rainy outside. Jane's story will touch your heart, I love her strong will and intuition she finally relies on.
