NTSC/Region 0. Starring Laurence Olivier, Merle Oberon, David Niven and Flora Robson, Wuthering Heights was director William Wyler's classic 1939 film based on the book written by Emily Bronte. One of the most compelling tragic romances ever captured on film, Wuthering Heights is an exquisite tale of doomed love and miscalculated intentions. Although the book has been adapted to the screen several times, this 70 year old classic remains the definitive version. MMT.
