Wuthering Heights---pronunciation

Since the film is on the TCM schedule again, this may be an appropriate time to ask, Is it Wuthering ( the "u" as in "duck") or Wuthering (the "u" as in "push"). The latter is the way that RO pronounces it. I always thought that the former was correct.

Actually, I would not have been paying attention. Try as I might, I simply can't get into that film. I've seen it numerous times through the years, but it just bores the heck outta me as I don't care for either Cathy or Heathcliff.

 

Here you'll see a little speaker icon right before the definition of "wuther" which should confirm the pronunciation for you:

It doesn't come soon enough for me. For over 40 years I've been trying to discover what others see in this film, it just leaves me cold. I just don't sense the passion that these characters are supposed to have.
