The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1968)

I stumbled across this film adaptation while trying to find more information on the 1970 production of Villette. It turned out haply that Bryan Marshall, the actor who played Dr. Graham Bretton in Villette, also played Gilbert Markham in this 1968 production of The Tenant of Wildfell Hall! He is also well known as Captain Wentworth from the earliest available BBC production of Persuasion by Jane Austen- and he was in Vanity Fair.
