New on DVD: Jane Eyre (1971)

I've long wanted to see the George C. Scott-Susannah York version of JANE EYRE. We own the John Williams soundtrack -- purchased on LP at Tower Records at London's Piccadilly Circus many moons ago -- but reviews of previous VHS and DVD releases indicated they were poor prints with missing scenes.

I was thus excited to see an ad in the latest Classic Images indicating that VCI Entertainment was bringing JANE EYRE out in a new DVD edition. It was released at the end of September.

Alas, an Amazon reviewer indicates that while footage missing from previous releases has found its way back into this DVD, the quality of the print remains poor -- dark, scratched, and variable color.


Update: Here's my review of the film itself, but not this particular DVD print.
