During the mid 60s, Lindsay Anderson was desperately trying to persuade Richard Harris to star as Heathcliff for his proposed retelling of Wuthering Heights. Harris's reluctance and this AIP version of the tale put an end to his dream project. 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.
