Pride and Prejudice Movie (1940) - Greer Garson, Laurence Olivier, Mary Boland

Pride and Prejudice Movie Trailer (1940) - Plot synopsis: Like the arrows she launches at an archery target during an elegant lawn party, Elizabeth Bennet's wit is pointed and unerring.

"If you want to be really refined, you have to be dead," she says, skewering the imperious airs of her hosts.

Jane Austen's timeless 1813 novel of unlikely romance is richly adapted in this lavish Academy Awardยฎ winner.* Greer Garson portrays spirited Elizabeth, one of five Bennet sisters hoping for matrimony.

Laurence Olivier plays Darcy, whose arrival at a nearby estate sets maiden hearts aflutter.

But first impressions can mean so very much.

Elizabeth and Darcy find reasons to view each other with disdain, setting in motion a velvet struggle of Pride and Prejudice, perception and reality, forgiveness and love.

You'll be irresistibly caught up in it.

Director: Robert Z.
