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

Like Wuthering Heights (1939), this film depicts only the first sixteen chapters concluding with Catherine Earnshaw Linton's death, and omits the trials of her daughter, Hindley's son, and Heathcliff's son. 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: I swear never to leave you.
Cathy Earnshaw: Or this place.
Heathcliff: Or this place. Unless you turn against me.
Cathy Earnshaw: And I swear always to be your friend, and to love no other as you as long as I live. May we both be buried alive under the black rocks of Penistone Crag if we ever break this vow. Now kiss me.

Crazy Credits

After a funeral scene, the opening credits appear in blue letters on a background of darkened, almost silhouette like, Yorkshire moor landscapes, scenes which appear again later in the film. See more »

The one and only authentic film version.
29 July 1999 | by Gayle-7See all my reviews

This version of Wuthering Heights, starring Timothy Dalton and Anna Calder-Marshall, is the only one I truly feel has realized Bronte's work, no transformed it! into screen. The music, although I haven't heard it since 1970, when the film was released, haunts me today. It's melancholy flute solo underscores a savage, brilliant performance by Timothy Dalton, and I cannot understand why this version is not available on video. Bravo! Timothy Dalton. You are Heathcliff, and this is one of my all-time favorite films. Certainly the one I most miss being able to view.
