Wuthering Heights (1962)
Not only some of the best acting ever, but also one of the most truthful adaptations of a novel
This film left me spell-bound! All of the actors were magnificent in expressing several emotions at once! Even Heathcliff's worst roughness becomes comprehensible by the pain he suffers from seeing his love slip away - all expressed in the eyes, tone of voice, face, even posture - Keith Michell! Cathy is not a fickle young woman as in so many other adaptations of the novel, but someone desperately torn between her own wishes as if she were a victim to them rather than to the circumstances. Claire Bloom really is Cathy as I imagined her when I read the novel. Great tragic acting on the part of the two leads! What a pity that this treasure can only be seen at the BFI (British Film Institute) in London (I'm grateful for that, though). If anyone interested would like to promote the release of this movie on DVD, perhaps emailing DVDenquiryline@2entertain.co.uk might help.
