(1939) Classic romantic melodrama from the Emily Bronte novel about the doomed love between Cathy (Merle Oberon), a Yorkshire doctor's daughter, and Heathcliff (Laurence Olivier), the downtrodden orphan who grows up with her, then runs away to make his fortune only to return to find Cathy wed to another (David Niven) and his riches meaningless without her. Directed by William Wyler, the well-crafted melodrama succeeds in evoking the fierce passion of Heathcliff's tormented yearnings for his lost love which allow him no peace until their spirits are united after death. Physical and mental cruelties, romantic obsessions and a spite marriage. The Catholic News Service classification of the theatrical version was A-III -- adults. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America. TCM (cable)
