Wuthering Heights (1939)


Recommended Posts

Without all the background strings and other music, it might have been a more powerful film! I hadn't seen it in so long that I had forgotten about all that! Sometimes the music nearly covered what they were saying!


But it was good to see again!

That Cathy was a real *female dog* to poor Heathcliffe, wasn't she??? Jeez!!!


But I guess that's true love; you take it and take it...


As a victim myself of star-crossing, I adore all these "doomed romance" films (GWTW, etc.), but nothing -- not even this -- holds a candle to "Brokeback"...

I'll say the same thing I once said about another 1939 movie, Dark Victory, in another forum: This movie screams "chick flick", and won't shut the hell up!

Wait for the musical version, when Cathy survives, and Heathcliff, Cathy, Edgar, and Isabella get up at the end and do a Busby Berkely dance number. :-)

I must admit that until I watched it last year, I never really got into this film. But after seeing and becoming smittem with TCM's fabulous promo for it, I decided to watch the actual film again. I guess for some of us, you just have to be in the right frame of mind to feel its impact. "To love is to endure!" ;) I wish it'd be released on DVD along with the promo piece produced by TCM.

Thank you all for not teasing me about my triple post a few days ago. From all indications, it didn't go through. So I kept trying. Didn't realize it actually did register, only I didn't see it. Or something like that. Next time I'll take a deep breath and wait.


A pleasure corresponding with you all. (You do see this. Right?)
