A fun fact regarding pride and prejudice:
The now famous miniseries of Pride and Prejudice featured a portrait that Lizzy saw at Pemberly of Mr. Darcy. That portrait was of Colin Firth in his role as Mr. Darcy. Just recently, the actual portrait from the miniseries went up for auction. It was estimated to fetch £7,000 but it actually sold for nearly double that! The painting went to a major fan (had to be, right?) for £12,000!
