Wuthering Heights

The 1939 version of the movie, directed by William Wyler and starring Laurence Olivier, Merle Oberon, David Niven, Geraldine Fitzgerald among others.

Everybody knows the story, so not narrating it here, but i guess the same rich girl meets poor boy, falls in love, parents disapprove, poor boy goes away, becomes rich, comes back to haunt the rich girl who has already married of somewhere else and tragedy, must have appeared in countless movies including some Indian movies.

Its a timeless classic written by Emily Bronte and here in this movie, Laurence Olivier shines brightly as the poor kid adopted by a stranger, his becoming a stable boy and then falling in love with Cathy becoming rich and coming back. Troubled, tormented, anguished love between two individuals who love themselves so much. Merle Oberon is okay in parts, David Niven has done a good role as the rejected husband and Geraldine Fitzgerald as the unhappy wife. Got some awards at the Oscars. Worth watching cult classic.
