An all-star cast - including Orson Welles, Joan Fontaine, Agnes Moorehead and Elizabeth Taylor - breathes magnificent life into this captivating 1944 film version of Charlotte Brontë's gothic romance novel. Adapted for the screen by Aldous Huxley, Robert Stevenson and John Houseman, and directed by Stevenson, this stirring film is the definitive version of the engrossing classic! After spending her childhood in an orphanage, young Jane Eyre (Fontaine) becomes governess to the ward of an imposing older man named Edward Rochester (Welles). Ultimately, Jane's gentle influence forces Rochester to drop his forbidding veneer, and he proposes to her. But the discovery that Rochester is already married, and further, that his volatile wife is locked in the attic, prompts Jane to leave as a series of tragic events unfold in this riveting classic that also features Margaret O'Brien.
