My Pride and Prejudice: the Book, the Movies, and the BBC Adaptations

This is a lovely, comprehensive fan blog concerning all things Pride and Prejudice. Favorite features: a page comparing the filmed versions of Darcy's proposal to Elizabeth with Austen's original, a look at the various Mr. Darcys (also, top 10 Mrs. Bennets and Bingley headshots), and a true "Janeite" review system for movies and spin-off books (3 stars = "Agreeable"). Naturally, there are opportunities for fans to reply and join in the conversation.
