The First Film Adaption


I couldn’t do this blog without mentioning the screen adaptions.  The films played a prevalent role in the modern popularity of P&P.  Let us jump over to the United States.  During the 1940’s, the Second World War was occurring as the country struggled to emerge from the Great Depression.  As the men and women left for battle, the one at home needed some sort of entertainment.  I have not seen this version but based on the fact it is filmed in black and white I can assume the cinematography was simple leaving most of the drama left in the words.  As for the poster for the movie, the woman does a good job portraying the persona a woman should hold in social encounters.  I think my favorite finding from this movie is Aldous Huxley is a screenwriter for the movie!!  This should not surprise many of us as Huxley was living in California at the time this film was produced.
