I‘ve been quite remiss with this challenge. #Multitasking to catch up a bit. The #2ndhandJane movie #memorabilia book depicts #whoseyourDarcy, Laurence Olivier (with Greer Garson, in a presumably #dreamcometrue moment.) One little book advises #whatwouldJanedo, one discusses #travelswithJane, and the tiniest is the #mostunusual in my library. #austeninaugust (I actually find Colin Firth a more attractive Mr. Darcy, but I ❤️ the old MGM movie.)

Crinoline_Laphroaig Well Done on the Multi Tasking! 1y

I'm giving this a Pick rather than a So - So because it's a anthology. As per usual, some are great and some are just not my style. Of course I loved the 'Bennets and Bingleys and Bitches' Quiz. Lani Diane Rich's 'My Firth Love' is hilarious. Which brings me to IMHO book's problem. It's dated. Copyright 2005 - Pre Matthew/Kiera P & P. No #whoseyourdarcy. Cellphones are talked of, but Social Media is so much more now. #austeninaugust #tbr

Crinoline_Laphroaig One off #mounttbr. Its definitely going in the #donate pile 1y
Linsy Love this pic! 1y
Crinoline_Laphroaig @Linsy We've had days of rain. Very unusual for Oklahoma in August. Every thing is still green and growing. 1y

It's @Melissa_J and #teammatthew with 54% for the win! It was close #teamcolin we were at 46%. But I feel we were all winners for having Darcy photos filling our @Litsy feeds. 🏆

I loved Matthew's version. He does shy and introverted so well. But Colin gets my vote for old times sake. He is a classic. 😍

Crinoline_Laphroaig @Melissa_J Me too! As well as @Litsy I've got a Facebook poll going and Instagram #research 1y
Sassy_Steph I generally love Colin Firth, he just does period pieces so well, but I‘m going with Matthew on this one, maybe it was just that he and Keira played so well together, but ya, that‘s my vote!! 1y

I do love Colin's smoldering gaze, but Matthew's more emotional Darcy wins the day for me. #whoseyourdarcy #austeninaugust

Melissa_J @KarenUK @erzascarletbookgasm @FantasyChick @Crinoline_Laphroaig Now I have to go and watch the movie again 😊 1y
Sophoclessweetheart Colin Firth is definitely mine😹😹 1y
Melissa_J @Sorceryandswords I‘m quite surprised (and happy) at the number of Matthew lovers on Litsy. I figured Colin Firth would be the overwhelming favourite. 1y
Sophoclessweetheart Honestly, I haven‘t seen this version 😹😹 1y
sprainedbrain Yes, yes, YES. 😍 1y
Felso Colin for me! But I do like Matthew if I need a P&P fix. I call it the abridged version. 1y
Crinoline_Laphroaig @Felso 😂 Your right 2hrs vs 6 1y
FantasyChick I honestly dont think I could could how many times I've rewatched this movie! I might need another watch soon. #MrDarcyLove 😍😍 1y

#UnpopularOpinion Much as I enjoyed the 80's BBC P&P, Colin Firth really doesn't do it for me and I didn't like the Matthew Macfadyen movie much at all (there's something about Keira Knightley that puts me off) so in spite of the fact I'm not an Olivier fan either, I have to choose the 1940 movie. At the very least he got the haughty arrogance absolutely right.

Crinoline_Laphroaig Being a rebel in the spirit of Lizzie Bennet. 😁 1y
JenniferP Colin Firth all the way for me! Part of that is that I love the production as a whole that is so faithful to the book. 1y
tif There's something about Keira Knightley that bugs me too 1y

batsy I didn't like the Keira Knightley film but that could be because I fell asleep while watching it 😂 I'm thinking I should give it another try and try to stay awake for it. Matthew MacFadyen isn't my cup of Darcy either, but Colin Firth is 😁 1y
Leftcoastzen He‘s so handsome. 1y
BiblioLitten Keira Knightly was the worst choice as Elizabeth. Bugs me too. 1y
Reggie Mmmmm Colin Firth @batsy. Especially in Love Actually where he‘s so wounded and you just want to hold him. Or in Bridget Jones. Awww. 1y
batsy @Reggie Even if he's wearing a reindeer jumper, you just want to hold him 😂😍 1y
