] ] ] I am actually old eneough to clearly remember this version and I can't find it anywhere. Its good but Mr. Rochester is too old (looks like he's in his late 50's or early 60's. As far as I know there is the Orson Welles/Joan Fontaine (still my fav), Susannah York/George C. Scott, Timothy Dalton, John Hurt and now this one. If anyone know of others, please (all you people in the Commonwealth) post them.
] ] The 1971 adaptation of Jane Eyre, an excellent one, I think, is available on videotape from Critics Choice for under $20. I look forward to comparing Scott's Rochester to Hinds'.
] I don't think it was the Scott/York adaptation. The one I saw stretched over several nights. I don't think Rochester was George C. Scott. I would have remembered THAT since I had seen "Patton" two years before and loved it. You don't easily forget that voice of his. I also don't think it was S. York who played Jane. If I recall, this actress was bigger boned than she. But I could be mistaken since it was over twenty years ago.
His use of his voice is amazing. When his Rochester discovers JE has left Thornfield, in a voiceover he bellows "JAANNEE" like a wounded animal. Chilling.
