Jane Eyre movies and other adaptations (radio, theatre, television) have captivated audiences for almost as long as the book has been around.
In this truncated version of the story, the tale of the orphan, Jane, and her romance with Mr. Rochester is more Horror than Gothic with a campy style and bizarre performances.
The script interpretation resembles the 1949 Studio One adaptation with Charlton Heston.
In this version, Jane is a gorgeous blonde bombshell with a snarky, independent personality. Mr. Rochester, on the other hand, is not very Byronic.
