    Entirely impeccable, I say. Superb and beautiful film which far outshines Gone With the Wind, and is my favorite film from the famous year of 1939. I consider it to be the pinnacle of cinematic romantic drama. I am adding it to my favorites - and neither the ending or Oberon keep me from it. A flawless film. 8 years 8 months ago

    It did not work for me. The cruelty of heathcliff was not even shown aside from a few phrases and a short slapping of Cathy and Cathy was merely depicted as an innocent girl in love with a stable girl rather than the wicked madwoman she really was. Decent cinematography and acting though, but the adaptation was a complete mess otherwise. 4 years ago

    This is a beautiful movie. Doesn't quite cover the whole book, but the acting, design and camera work are all impeccable. Ever notice how big Olivier was? He's so good he can play someone small and look small doing it, but in this he looks enormous! 9 years 2 months ago
