The Many Faces of Elizabeth Bennet & Fitzwilliam Darcy (Part 5)

And one more update here, this time on The Many Faces of Elizabeth Bennet & Fitzwilliam Darcy with two new upcoming re-telling and Zombie mash-up movies of Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice novel, the upcoming Hallmark Channel's Unleashing Mr. Darcy starring premiering on Hallmark on January 23rd, 2016 and Seth Grahame-Smith's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies film starring  &

Several actors have portrayed the most popular fictional couple Elizabeth Bennet & Fitzwilliam Darcy (aka Mr. Darcy) in Jane Austen's classic novel Pride and Prejudice, which has been adapted countless times from Stage (1936)/Broadway (First Impression 1959), TV mini-series (1938, 1952, 1967, 1980, and 1995), and films (1940, 1958, and 2005, as well as inspired P&P films such as Pride and Prejudice: A Latter-Day Comedy 2003, Bride & Prejudice 2004, Death Comes To Pemberley, and Bridget Jones movies to name a few) numerous times since 1936 (stage version) to the 2005 Oscar nominated film version starring Keira Knightley & Matthew Macfadyen.

I'm sure many of you P&P fans have seen at least 1 or 2 TV or film versions of P&P. I can say now that I've seen at least 10 (1940, 1980, 1995, 2003, B&P 2004, 2005, Lost In Austen, A Modern P&P, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, and Death Comes To Pemberley...I'll see both Unleashing Mr. Darcy and PPZ movies in 2016 as well as Bridget Jones' Baby movie) of them. Of course, the 2005 film version (with Keira & Matthew) remain my all-time favorite P&P film adaptation of all P&P versions I've seen. It was the BEST P&P version I've ever seen (and have seen countless times for a decade now!), in my humble opinion. It made me love and finished reading the original novel (as well as watched every P&P adaptation released on both TV & Films), it made me love both Keira Knightley as an actress and Matthew Macfadyen as an actor (as well as the rest of P&P 05 cast), and the reason I created my own P&P Fan Forum, Devoted Fans of P&P on FB, Tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, and this P&P Blog here, of course.

Anyway, here are some images from various P&P adaptations (including the 4 notable tv/film versions that most of us had either seen or heard about and are universally acknowledged) that I could find through google image searches on the web...
