      Due to my own life's experience, this story line touches my heart. Also, I enjoy the innocence that exists in older movies. Somehow, this seems to add to the intrigue rather than take away from it. Very poignant movie.

              Laurence Olivier and Merle Oberon at their romantic best! Even though they personally did not like one another the love between Heathcliff and Kathy is palpable and convincing proving what truly great actors they were. The atmosphere of the film is brilliantly played out between the gloom of Wuthering Heights and the opulence of The Grange. The perfect film for a dreary, drizzly afternoon.

                      I's a shame that movies like this are so rare. Definitely an outstanding cast and screenplay, played to perfection by actors of the times.

                          This is one of the greatest films ever made. William Wyler was a genius and the performance he extracted from Laurence Olivier - largely by tormenting him - still stands as one of the cinema's most nuanced and romantic portrayals.

                          The entire cast is excellent. David Niven hated his role, but was terrific in it anyway; Merle Oberon is as confounding and lovely as she's meant to be; Flora Robson is perfect as Ellen and provides a compelling frame for the film.

                          Wyler hated the ending which Sam Goldwyn ordered shot with the second unit when Wyler refused to do it. I would prefer the original ending, but this one cannot detract from the impact of a spectacularly haunting and magical film.

                              For many years this DVD was out of print. So grab a copy before the Samuel Goldwyn Company shoves it back in the vault!

                              There will never be an another adaptation of this novel to rival this classic telling of WUTHERING HEIGHTS. Though the film's ending is mostly likely not what Bronte ever intended, it still makes for great theatre.

                              One of the greatest ensemble casts ever assembled and Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur's script is simply great literature. Each time I see it another piece of dialogue leaps out at me for it's beauty and insight.

                              Heathcliff to Cathy:

                              "If only your heart were as strong as your dull fear of God and world, I would gladly have lived silently contented within your shadows. But no, you must destroy us both with this weakness you call virture."

                              And then there is the haunting Alfred Newman score. It is one simple melody that is reimagined throughout the film to enhance each emotional nuance from scene to scene.

                              William Wyler illicited Oscar worthy performances from Laurence Olivier and Merle Oberon (she was never better than here). Even Olivier, who apparetnly fought with Wyler during the filming, credits him for teaching him how to act on film.

                              I can't say enough about WUTHERING HEIGHTS. You must grab this DVD for your collection and share this film with anyone who is a fan of great literature and/or great film making.
