Jane Austen Adaptation Quiz – guessing closed

Most of us have seen at least one film based on a Jane Austen novel, so this week let’s see if you can place these faces.  You only need to tell me the character and the movie (not the actor’s name or the year of the film).  They are all direct adaptations and the images may or may not be from the Austen movie – I can’t make it that easy!  There are only 6 titles to choose from so how hard can it be? :)

Each question is worth 5 points and since I’m getting this posted a little late you have until Friday morning to leave your answers in the comments.

Here are the rules… 1. Open to everyone.  Play once or every week, that’s okay.  I’m happy to have you here today.

2. No cheating.  No googling, other internet searches or looking at other commenter answers.  Yes, we’re going by the honor system

3. Your first answers will be the only ones accepted.

Last week’s Dr. Seuss results here.  Current Leaderboard here.

1. Marianne Dashwood, Sense & Sensibility

2. Fanny Price, Mansfield Park

3.  Mr. Bennet, Pride & Prejudice 4. Mr. Palmer, Sense & Sensibility
