Orson Welles muscled his directorial skill, much to the despair of the producers, to secretly-craft the darkest, moodiest, most gothic melodrama/love-story ever to be made in Hollywood. Fontaine is at her finest, and most beautiful. Welles has never been better. The definitive version of Jane Eyre, a classic!
Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre sure looks like star Orson Welles muscled his way behind the camera much of the time. (In fact, costar Joan Fontaine--who plays the title character--has maintained that Welles methodically did just that every day on the set.)
I take it we discount the quotes from various people (inc. Fontaine)
