Review "Jane Eyre" is a dramatic and entertaining version of the Charlotte Bronte classic. Part mystery, part romance, and part costume drama, the film has strongest appeal to women, but even men should enjoy the performances of leads Joan Fontaine and Orson Welles, as well as the crackling script...Fontaine appears uncomfortable, and her acting mostly consists of silent suffering. But she does this quite well, just as she did in "Rebecca". Her character falls in love very quickly with tempestuous Rochester. This is credible, since her self-preservation instincts would sense the opportunity in marrying a wealthy man, and he is the first marriageable man that she has met...The film's biggest weakness is the ending. I won't give it away, but it comes suddenly and is a bit clumsily crafted. Still, "Jane Eyre" is a very enjoyable soaper, especially Welles' campy performance.
