David Niven dreaded the film not only because he was playing a thankless, secondary role, but because he dreaded working with William Wyler again. Merle Oberon was uncomfortable working with Niven after their year long love affair ended in 1936. See more »

Opening credits prologue: On the barren Yorkshire moors in England, a hundred years ago, stood a house as bleak and desolate as the wastes around it. Only a stranger lost in a storm would have dared to knock at the door of Wuthering Heights. See more »
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.
