Overview

This romantic drama concerns two star-crossed lovers who are half-brother and sister to each other. Catherine Anna Calder-Marshall is the daughter of the lord of the manor who falls for the brooding stable boy Heathcliff Timothy Dalton. When Heathcliff leaves to seek his fortune, he returns to find Catherine has married the local magistrate Edgar Ian Ogilvy. The story is told by the beautiful blonde servant girl Nellie Judy Cornwell, who narrates at the beginning to set the stage for the picture. Hindley Julian Glover is Catherine's older brother who tries to take over the house and land after the death of their father Harry Andrews. When his own wife and child dies, a drunken Hindley gambles away the family holdings to the opportunistic Heathcliffe. Filmed in England, the scenery is spectacular but this version lacks the foreboding, shadowy drama of the 1939 original starring Merle Oberon and Laurence Olivier.

    The warning nobody else bothered to mention.....

    After all the other five star reviews that were given, I thought somebody ought to list the reasons why you might be offended by this movie-just in case anyone wants to know what they're getting before they spend their money on it. Yes, it has a good storyline-at least, an entertaining one. Timothy Dalton gives a very strong performance as Heathcliff-extremely intense and the supporting actors are for the most part believable. If the film were edited, it would be an enjoyable movie. However: -bad language is liberal throughout the movie, including a number of times where God's name is taken in vain -the womens' dresses are indecent that might have been the style of the time period, but raising the necklines an inch or two (or three) would have made it much better -there are several crude scenes with inappropriate actions-including one that gives more than adequate reason to suspect that Cathy's baby may not be Edgar's(her husband)I fastforwarded through this scene so I'm not sure just how far it went-but you get the idea. Most people won't care about all this-I just thought I'd write a caution for anyone who isn't sure of the content and doesn't want to buy something that will offend them.

    A Heartwrenching Story

    This movie is what possessed me to read the novel-certainly one of the best books ever to be called a classic. Timothy Dalton captures all the savageness and wild passion of Heathcliff. He, however, is one of the few charaters whom I felt played their roles effectively. All were either overly emotional or stagnant in their performance. I also felt it undermined the story to change it so much. If you watch this movie, don't take your eyes off Timothy! If you simply want to experience a stirring love story, read the book instead!

    BEST VERSION EVER MADE

    THIS VERSION IS BY FAR THE MOST PASSIONATE, INTENSE LOVE STORY AND YET REALLY HOLDS TRUE TO THE DARK AND FOREBODING NATURE OF THE BRONTE MASTERPIECE. TIMOTHY DALTON IS AS INTIMIDATING AS HE IS VULNERABLE AS THE VERY COMPLICATED HEATHCLIFF.

    One of my favorite movies, period

    I first saw this movie when it came out in 1970, and I have loved it since then, as well as Timothy Dalton. He is the perfect Heathcliff, and Ms. Calder-Marshall does a good job of playing Catherine, especially when she returns playing the ''aristocrat'' from Thrushcross Grange. I have always thought this movie got lost in the shuffle somewhere. The dying scene is done exactly like the book, and both performers were superb. I always have thought this version caught the subtleties of the characters in the book, unlike the first version. Although it added to the romanticism of the movie, Heathcliff's demise was the creation of the screen writers, just like the first version's most famous scene, where Heathcliff takes Cathy to the window. Judy Cornwell also was great as the servant. The scene where she goes out to the garden and Heathcliff realizes that Catherine is dead was also executed perfectly by her and Dalton, again, just like the book. If you love romantic, but sad, movies, this is a great one that has always been under rated.

    BROODING AND ETHEREAL

    I FOUND THIS VERSION OF THE BRONTE NOVEL MADE INTO A MOVIE TO BE THE BEST I HAVE EVER SEEN.. I ALSO LOVED THE LAURENCE OLIVER AND MERLE OBERON VERSION.. BUT THIS ONE WITH TIMOTHY DALTON IN THE FIRST ROLE I HAD EVER SEEN ALONG WITH THE HAUNTINGLY BEAUTIFUL MUSIC OF MICHAEL LEGRAND WAS ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING TO ME..IF THERE WERE MORE THAN 5 STARS I WOULD GIVE IT THAT...
