Jane Eyre 1943, B&W, 97, 20th Century Fox, directed by Roger Stevenson. Starring Orson Welles and Joan Fontaine. Weird bit of soapy Gothic, from the Charlotte Brontë novel, which I have not read but assume is likewise Goth-y. Not my usual sort of thing, but it was the least objectionable alternativ...

I really think this should be placed much, much earlier in the timeline.

I also don't think Leslye Headland should be allowed anywhere near Star Wars.

A totally pointless change intended for the never-released 3D version. The change only introduced continuity errors. The shot is also not static, but it pans.

Sorry for the DP... I've been a stark defender of the Special Editions and later changes. However, I can't defend the latest changes made to ROTJ introduced in 2011. The door to Jabba's palace is just dumb and Vader's "Noooo" ruined the scene.
