Critic Reviews of "Jane Eyre (1943)"EmanuelLevy.ComMarch 24, 2012
One of the best Hollywood versions of Bronte's classic text, largely due to Orson Welles' powerful performance, dark visuals, and ominous music by yje genius Bernard Herrmann.Nick's Flick PicksJanuary 17, 2010
The whole picture seems to fuse a relentless, revisionist Mercury Theater "take" on Jane Eyre to an obvious attempt on the part of Fox to ride the post-Rebecca wave of Gothic romantic mystery.Combustible CelluloidMay 10, 2007
It's difficult to watch the film without considering aspects of authorship, but if you can, there's a very good film underneath.Slant MagazineApril 30, 2007
A well-constructed piece of studio work, with vivid black-and-white cinematography under matte painting skies that creates a turbulent, oppressive mood.Movie MetropolisApril 26, 2007
...that this Jane Eyre is more Orson Welles's movie than co-star Joan Fontaine's or director Robert Stevenson's may be a blessing in disguise.Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)September 23, 2003
Solid, unimaginative version of the book with great cast.
