Jane Austen favorites

Beautiful soundtrack of Emma

Mister Knightly
I rode through the rain, I'd ride through worse than that if I could just hear your voice telling me that I might at least have some chance to win you.

Marry me, marry me my wonderful, darling friend
This one with Jeremy Northam, my all time favorite Mister Knightly

and The proposal of Darcy in Pride and Prejudice
with Colin Firth, my favorite Darcy :)

The first time I saw P and P, was in 1980 when I was 17! Here Darcy was played by David Rintoul. He actually send me a signed photo :) in 1980 (which I put in a safe place and can't find now of course, but I know it's there). [clip is a music video, sorry about that, I could not find a dialogue scene of the 1980 version].

But below a signed photo of Colin Firth!

Below is a digital drawing/render I did a couple of years back

What is your favorite Austen book/movie/character?

Hi Elsina!! I love Jane Austen! and her books!! Pride and prejudice is so far the best book (to me)but i never saw the 1980´s version, so just I know the version with Keira Knigtly (i dont know if I wrote it ok)and Mathew....(I dont remember his last name!! but he is very handsome!!! The marriege a little different, but the scene that I love is when Mr Darcy declares his love outside the church...and she refused him..DO you remember? Well my english is not very well, but I like Jane Austen so much!! ... Huges CINTIA
