Favorite JA adaptation:P&P1 (1980)

P&P1 (1980) was my introduction to P&P and to Jane Austen. We'd had a copy of Persuasion in the house, but because I mistakenly believed it to have a modern setting, I had never read it. A friend gave me a copy of the complete works of Jane Austen in paperback, including Lady Susan, which was at the back. I read all of the books. I didn't care much for Lady Susan; so when it began to fall out of the volume I helped its exit along. Now it has come apart, and is more or less separated into the 6 separate works that are left. I did not come to like S&S until Emma Thompson brought it to screen both as actress and as screenwriter in 1995. I have never watched P&P2 (1995) all the way through; it's all wrong for Charlotte to be prettier than Jane and I just generally can't stomach it.
