JA did not convince me of the transfer of feeling since she just stated it.
I agree. Unfortunately, I read P&P first, and every one after that - although still superb by any literary standards - doesn't really compare. I know this was Jane's first 'proper' novel, but she still failed to convince me as she did in P&P. Nevertheless, you're right - Col. Brandon in the film was wonderful. I've only seen it once - I'll have to get the video again and refresh my memory!
