How Can You Rate A Missing Film?
20 January 2008 | by (Salt Lake City) – See all my reviews

As I write this nine people have given this 1920 British silent version of "Wuthering Heights" an average rating of 8.5! That's pretty good for a film that does not seem to exist any longer. I can only assume that they are rating one of the many other versions of this film made during the sound era. Having a great love and respect for what filmmakers were able to create in the so called silent era of film-making, it would be fascinating to see how "Wuthering Heights" handled. If the British had the talent that the Swedish Victor Seastrom show with his realistic acting and directing of the 1920 "The Phantom Carriage", then the film would be well worth finding. I doubt that the English filmmakers were turning out films to match Seastrom's masterpiece, but then neither were the American filmmakers doing so. Let's hope that someday this missing film will resurface.
