I'll second that, Fred. I especially liked what Trebek said about Hecht and MacArthur on the screenplay. I've never read the book, so don't know how much it differs. I'll confess I didn't even recognize the younger Kellaway and Carroll. Just knew it was them from the credits. And I've got to see more Geraldine Fitzgerald movies.

Fred,

 

i watched it as well yesterday and i just thought everything about this movie was done well...everything again from a-z..it was shot soooo beautifully! And i just loved that moment when she said..... "But Ellen, i am Heathcliff! And then the thunder outside right after she said it and then she dahes out after him!! Wonderful....and i looooved Olivier in it..so much PASSION!

 

So as usual i do agree with u again my good freind Fred!....heehee

Thanks for this post! The acting ensemble is matchless. The direction on the mark.

The black & white photography is perfect. The starkness of Wuthering Heights

against the brightness of the Linton Mansion. Altogether, SUPERB!!!
