    'Pride and Prejudice' from Greer Garson to murder mystery

    With P. D. James' new book 'Death Comes to Pemberley,' Jane Austen's novel 'Pride and Prejudice' is getting another makeover. In James's story, it's six years after the end of the original book, and Elizabeth and Darcy's idyllic life is turned upside down when Lizzy's sister Lydia shows up claiming that her husband, George Wickham, has been murdered. But James' novel is hardly the first to revive the classic. Since its publication in 1813, Austen's most famous novel has had enduring popularity, inspiring everything from movie adaptations to a satire that adds zombies. Here are a few of the most memorable 'P&P' incarnations over the years.
