WUTHERING HEIGHTS by EMILY BRONTËRead about the other 24 adaptations on the list.
Film adaptation: 1939
Director: WILLIAM WYLER
Brontë’s gothic tale of moors madness gets the William Wyler treatment in this classic movie version starring Merle Oberon as Cathy and Laurence Olivier as Heathcliffe. None of the subsequent adaptations has matched the dark power of the brilliant Wyler’s. Not even the one with Cliff Richard.
Wuthering Heights appears on Valerie Martin's list of novels about doomed marriages and Susan Cheever's list of the five best books about obsession.
