(NR) USA – 1 hr 44 min
1939 · d. William Wyler  
Starring Laurence Olivier, David Niven, Merle Oberon, Flora Robinson

Raised together on a remote moor, young Cathy (Merle Oberon) forges a powerful bond with stable boy Heathcliff (Laurence Olivier). When Cathy marries the well-to-do Edgar Linton (David Niven), the enraged Heathcliff vanishes, only to return years later, bent on reclaiming his lost love—or avenging his broken heart. An exemplar of Classical Hollywood romance, this passionate adaptation of Emily Brontë's novel was nominated for eight Academy Awards.

Shown in conjunction with the film course Brontë and Dickens on Screen: Then and Now, this screening will be introduced by the course's instructor, Alice Bullitt, M.A.
