Pride and Prejudice (1980– )
10/10
Wonderful
19 February 2005
I loved this production of Pride and Prejudice. David Rintoul was magnificent as Mr.Darcy. All he had to do was walk into the room and you knew who he was. I loved that he played Darcy as a very commanding character,but also as a man who is desperately in love. Elizabeth Garvie played the best Elisabeth Bennet I have ever seen. I couldn't get enough of how she challenged ,and often bested, David at almost every turn. I loved her singing scenes. I can't speak very much for the sets. Sorry. However,I loved Elisabeth's costumes. I must say I liked them much better than I did any of the other women's costumes. No offense. I thought Osmund Bullock did a extremely fine job of playing Mr.Bingley, and loving a woman at first sight. He didn't seen like he was acting at all in his scenes. Sabina Franklyn (Jane Bennet) really did a good job playing a sweet girl, but I really didn't believe she was in love. I'm sorry, but I didn't. Marsha Fitzalan, who played Miss.Bingley, did a fine job of playing a woman you just want to give a good kick because of all that she tries to do. Judy Parfitt played Lady Catherine de Bourgh to perfection. I loved that Judy gave her a will of iron. I could not stand Malcolm Rennie (Mr.Collins) or Priscilla Morgan who played Mrs.Bennet which is wonderful! They were both dead annoying, and I cannot be more grateful for it.
