Summary, etc.: Academy Award winners Sir Laurence Olivier and Greer Garson star in the film adaptation of Jane Austin's classic novel Pride and Prejudice. The socially conscious Mrs. Bennet (Mary Boland), with the begrudging help of her husband (Edmund Gwenn), sets out to find suitable--and suitably rich--husbands for her five daughters. The already difficult project becomes even more complicated when Mrs. Bennet's strongest-willed daughter, Elizabeth (Garson), decides to pursue rich and handsome, but cynical and boorish, Mr. Darcy (Olivier). But Elizabeth will only win Mr. Darcy on her own terms--and only after exacting genteel revenge for his initial indifference toward her in this story of romance, wit and manners.
