In 1943, Charlotte Brontë's classic novel Jane Eyre was brought to life by 20th Century Fox with Joan Fontaine and Orson Welles in the leads.

Interestingly, Walter Pidgeon and Alan Marshal were considered for the brooding mystery man, and Vivien Leigh and Katharine Hepburn were allegedly vying for the female lead.

Orson Welles and Loretta Young had actually performed in a radio adaption of the novel in 1940.

Margaret O’Brien was only six years old during the production, and she was originally considered to play a young Jane Eyre.
