The film was originally rated GP in the US by the MPAA (there was no PG in 1970) but was cut to G because it was booked into the Radio City Music Hall and the Hall, because it drew families, only showed G-rated films. American International Pictures was so desirous of a Hall booking that they capitulated. See more »
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 »
Four stars; a stirring tale of love on English hillsides
My mother had seen this movie in theaters as a girl and, since then, has always commented on how "romantic and secretly sexy" Timothy Dalton and the picture were. I recently saw the film for the first time and could not agree with her more. I was impelled to read the book afterwards and did so in 7.5 hours! I couldn't put it down! The movie was strikingly different from the book but was still wonderful. Dalton and Calder-Marshall shine in their roles. The camera-work is excellent but not even the glorious English moors can distract us from the love of Heathcliff and Cathy. While most likely a "chick flick," this movie is to be enjoyed by all.
