Trivia

The film's title came about because the Samuel Goldwyn Co. threatened to sue Paramount, as it owned the rights to the title via the 1939 film. Upheld by the Motion Picture Association of America, Goldwyn was legally permitted to fine Paramount $2,500 every time it neglected to add the Emily Brontë prefix to the title of their version.

It's a good story, and you get it all to the bitter end.
30 March 2000 | by (Jacksonville, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

It is puzzling that critics generally seem not to like this filming of Emily Bronte's tale of vengeance and woe. True, it is not a perfect novel as even Charlotte Bronte allowed in a preface to a later edition, but it evokes powerful images and emotions apropos of the Yorkshire country. This film, moreover, gives us the whole story to the bitter end, unlike some previous filmings. It is beautifully photographed in a bleak and forbidding setting. Color balances seem a tad weird at times and the editing is not always precise, but it is certainly a good attempt at a difficult story. For me, I found the acting good to adequate, often even excellent. This version deserves a look.
