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

During the mid 60's, 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 »

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: Joseph, what have you heard?
Joseph: Been sick. She's up now. With child. Seven month.
Heathcliff: And how is Edgar taken that?
Joseph: He's waiting to the colour of its eyes.

Timothy Dalton IS Heathcliff!!
21 May 1999 | by (Ann Arbor, MI) – See all my reviews

Timothy Dalton plays Heathcliff as no one before or since has played him. He is passionate and brooding, cruel and tender. His bright eyes pierce through Cathy's soul, and our own, when he returns from his wanderings to find her married to Edgar Linton.

The rest of the cast is also well-chosen. Anna Calder-Marshall, not as conventionally beautiful as other Cathy's have been, nonetheless, portrays the charisma of the character and her possessive, obsessive personality with brilliant accuracy. Ian Ogilvy as Edgar is just the right touch of gentle lover and aristocratic snob, so that it is believable that Cathy might actually fall for him, on the surface at any rate.

This was Mr. Dalton's first foray into the gothic depths of the Bronte sisters' works. His second, as Mr. Rochester in the fine BBC version (1985) of Jane Eyre, was just as compelling. Now if he were just a few inches shorter, we could get him to play the French teacher in a movie of Villette!!
