Storyline

The Earnshaws are Yorkshire farmers during the early 19th Century. One day, Mr. Earnshaw returns from a trip to the city, bringing with him a ragged little boy called Heathcliff. Earnshaw's son, Hindley, resents the child, but Heathcliff becomes companion and soulmate to Hindley's sister, Catherine. After her parents die, Cathy and Heathcliff grow up wild and free on the Moors and despite the continued enmity between Hindley and Heathcliff they're happy-- until Cathy meets Edgar Linton, the son of a wealthy neighbor.

Trivia

Like Wuthering Heights (1939), this film depicts only the first sixteen chapters concluding with Catherine Earnshaw Linton's death and omits the trials of her daughter, Hindley's son, and Heathcliff's son. See more »

Goofs

When Heathcliff learns of Cathy's death, he cries out in anguish. When his mouth is open, silver-colored fillings (amalgam) are visible in his back teeth. During the time period the movie was set in, this type of dental procedure was not in existence. See more »

Quotes

Heathcliff: [at Cathy's grave] Catherine Earnshaw, I say one prayer. May you not rest while I am living.

Crazy Credits

After a funeral scene, the opening credits appear in blue letters on a background of darkened, almost silhouette like, Yorkshire moor landscapes, scenes which appear again later in the film. See more »

Best Wuthering Heights
8 September 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Wuthering Heights is one of my most favorite novels. The novel is so passionate that it captures the reader from start to end. Emily Bronte has kept the grip of the novel from start to end. Both her characters, Heathcliff and Catharine dominate the readers minds throughout. Even after the death of Catharine, one can feel her existence, through Heathcliff's eyes. This movie of Wuthering heights may not cover the entire novel, but it is true to the book. Timothy Dalton has portrayed Heathcliff like no other. His love and anger for Catharine is so true to the way Emily Bronte had penned the character Heathcliff. Anna Calder Marshall has also done a great job (though she has never got credit to her role) She is not very pretty but she is very impressive in her role. Judy Cornwell has played the role of Nelly and I think it is one of her best. Nelly can feel the pain and passion of Heathcliff & Catharine's love for each other and Cornwell portrays that exceedingly well. The background music is very haunting. I give this movie 10/10.
