The orphan child Heathcliff is taken in by the Earnshaw family. Close to his step-sister Catherine, an obsessive passion forms between the two, but when old Earnshaw dies, Catherine's cruel brother Hindley is the new master and forces Heathcliff into servitude. One of the refined neighbors Edgar Linton calls on Catherine and, attracted by his manners and influence, she agrees to marry him. Heathcliff runs away and returns a wealthy man years later. His re-appearance disrupts the tranquil marriage between Catherine and Edgar, and from there, the story spirals into one of vengeance and tragedy, nearly poisoning the next generation with its after-effects.

As one so enamored with Period Piece films, I deeply regret to say that this rendering of the classic Wuthering Heights was almost unwatchable. This is as uninspired a screenplay that was ever ill-conceived in what must have been a lapse of the Screenwriter's sanity There is not a single character that you can truly have empathy for. You want to at least like the patriarch, Mr. Earnshaw, but he too is so gruff, and uncivilized that his genuine affection for the rejected Heathcliff seems almost out of place....Gratuitously violent, pitifully acted, and unskillfully cast and directed, I don't dislike anyone enough to ask them to watch this production!
