Jane Eyre (1943) ****

Orson Welles, for me, is the definitive Rochester, handsome, egotistical, unpredictable. He’s also more subtle and touching than other actors who have played the role.

A real weepie, despite the weak central performance of Joan Fontaine as Jane. Watch out for a very young Liz Taylor as Helen Burns.

One of my all-time favourite period dramas, even if all the mists and stuff are more of Emily Bronte’s country than sister Charlotte’s!
