Mr. Darcy reveals to Lizzy that his sister is to have 30,000 pounds. This sum is her dowry, given to her upon her marriage from the family. It would amount to an income of 1,500 pounds a year on a 5 percent interest, making Miss Georgiana Darcy a very eligible young woman. In comparison, Mr. Bennet has agreed to give the married Lydia 100 pounds a year, meaning her dowry, as well as those of her four other sisters, is only 2,000 pounds.
The dinner table scene at Lady Catherine's was the first scene shot for the film. Elizabeth's conversation with Mr. Wickham under the tree was the last. Filming at that location, Burghley House in Linconshire, lasted from the 18th to the 22nd of July, 2004, according to the house's website. In the film (and the novel), the house is called Rosings. Filmed almost entirely on location. The only set built for the film was the Meryton Assembly room where Darcy and the Bingleys are first introduced, because assembly rooms of the type no longer survive in England, or are at least very hard to find nowadays. Building the set also allowed the crew to build it to their exact specifications. Filming on a real location that was that narrow would have been incredibly difficult anyway.
When Lady Catherine shows up at the Bennett house, at first only Jane and Elizabeth are visible to Mr. Bennett's right (our left), with the remainder of the family to Mr. Bennett's left (our right). After Lady Catherine states that she must speak to Elizabeth alone, Mary appears to Mr. Bennett's left (our right), holding a dog.
What is the difference between the European ending and the American ending?
The European versions of the film end with Mr Bennet saying that he is at his leisure if any young men come for Kitty or Mary. There is no scene of Lizzy and Darcy kissing at Pemberley.
Is it true Emma Thompson worked on the script?
Yes, she worked on the scene where Charlotte tells Lizzy she's engaged to Mr Collins, when Lizzy receives bad news by letter in the inn at Lambton and the Region 1 ending with Lizzy and Darcy at Pemberley.
What is Darcy's first name?
It's Fitzwilliam, which was his mother's maiden name.
