Stud alert! And the yummiest is......

I love all four versions of these classics, Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion, but the men in them are markedly different. Let's compare.


Handsome in a smoldering sort of way, but I have to admit it's his snobbery that seems to put him over the top. If he was being all nice would I still like him? Hmm...


Alas, he will always be second fiddle, but how does he hold up on his own? He looks younger and softer somehow doesn't he, like creamy butter. I honestly felt he loved her, that she had won him over heart and soul, more so than in the first version. Sigh...


This man is an excellent actor. He managed to convince me that he was younger than he was - because he had to be at least 45 here (super old)and by the end I just didn't care. Anne loved him and so did I. My heart flutters...


Was there ever such a pouty mouth and intense stare? Too many choices...

I still think Colin First is just SO UGLY. He makes me shudder just to look at him. Bleagh!

I haven't seen the second version of Persuasion, but I didn't like the guy in the first one. It was that stupid hat that did it. He just looked so ridiculous! :D

Oh, it's a good one, that second version. You can probably get it at the library as it came out on pbs last year. I don't think he ever wears that silly hat. Yah!

Would you believe I've only seen two of these movies? I must see them all in the interest of research.

What! I have copies of all of them. I might loan them to you for a small fee..
