Directed by William Wyler
First of all, I am a huge fan of Emily Bronte's works. I loved Wuthering Heights; rarely have I read a book that is so packed with emotions. That being said, I knew that any adaptation of the novel would probably be extremely over the top which is why I have avoided seeing it. But the list wants what the list wants.
For those of you who don't (I am glaring in disgust right now), this is a love story between Heathcliff and Catherine. The two have a deep connection that almost seems violent at times, so passionate is their love/obsession for each other. Anyway, these cooky kids just can't get it right.
I have never been too fond of Laurence Olivier but after seeing this movie, I think I am in love. Seriously, will you look at him? He is so sexy but I can't find anyone that agrees with me. He is not the best actor in the world but by Darwin, he is nice to look at. Like I said, the movie is really melodramatic but if that is something that you are in the mood for, it is pretty well done. I loved the score most of all; better than Gone With the Wind's!
Force male entities to watch this film at your own risk.
Vivien Leigh wanted the main role so that she could be in a movie with her husband. She got rejected!
Merle Oberon and Laurence Olivier hated each other.
