    I've not seen the Olivier; I did not know he had done it. So far, mine is the A&E six-hour version.

    I can't decide, I've seen them all though, so I know what every single one has to offer.

    I have to agree. No one can play Darcy like Colin Frith

    My favorite is BBC version with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle. After waching this version, when I'm reading the book, I always see Firth's face

    I didn't enjoy watching P&P version from 1940 very much. Generally I like the old movies but this one... For me, the most annoying was discrepancy between the book's plot and the movie's plot. And the costumes-all dresses were looking like they were taken from Gone with the Wind!

    I love the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice. I have to agree that noone can play Mr. Darcy better than Colin Firth.
    Existence is not only temporary, it is pointless.

    Colin Firth all the way!
    I am, however, so biased when it comes to my beloved Pride and Prejudice, that I Love every adaptation....... no matter how unrecognizable. I own copies of most of them.
    Did you see Bride and Prejudice, the version from India?
    So colorful!
