First rate cast delivers the exciting Victorian novel by Emily Bronte in true style and grace. Olivier masterfully plays the strange Heathcliff and Oberon is luminous as Cathy. The film won the Oscar for its brilliant cinematoraphy, thanks to the touch of Gregg Toland. This great love story never falters, especially under the direction of William Wyler and with a supporting cast that features Niven, Fitzgerald and Donald Crisp.
