Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
What gave Harpo Marx the great idea of adapting Jane Austen for the screen was "a sentimental comedy in three acts" by an Australian named Helen Jerome, a dramatization of Pride and Prejudice that he saw in Philadelphia on October 28, 1935. Read the first page

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Kim on 31 Jan. 2006
Format: Paperback
As I'm in the process of writing my thesis on contemporary adaptations on classic texts I'm killing myself trying to find books that mention the films I'm interested in... this book was an absolute god send.
As well as more academic (although still immensly readable) essays on adaptations and the decisions that have been made it also talks about the less academic films, such as 'Clueless'
The books is a fascinating read and I recommend it to everyone who has an interest in Jane Austen films. Terrific for students or fans of Austen alike

Easy to read; easy to recommend. 21 Nov. 2004
By Dedicated Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Easy and accessible reading on a great writer. One of the best things about this book is the lack of critical consensus on so many important Austen issues (especially concerning her ostensible feminism and her indisputable irony)--it's always amusing (and enlightening) to listen in on a civilised, academic brawl! Do make sure to get the 2nd edition with 14 essays including the new one, "The Mouse that Roared."

2nd edition 24 April 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The second edition (available only in paperback) contains a new essay, "The Mouse that Roared," about Patricial Rozema's film of Mansfield Park.
Review 19 May 2014
By Marianne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Though I like the idea of this book I sadly felt I could not agree with several of the opinions stated. I feel that Sense and Sensibility(1995) as well as Persuasion(1995) are accurate representations of the novels and are true gifts to the world.:)

Format: Paperback
This book really helped me explain Jane Austen to my husband. Now he watches the movies with me quite contentedly.
