This 1939 film was amazingly directed by William Wyler. I thought Laurence Olivier and Merle Oberon were very good as the doomed lovers Cathy and Heathcliff. Although both seemed a little too nice for the part, not as self-absorbed as I had wished. Through out the film I kept thinking how perfect Orson Welles would have been in the role of Heathcliff since he tends to have a very aloof nature. (sorry Laurence) Lastly, as just a little trivia, Olivier originally wanted his wife Vivien Leigh to play the role of Cathy but butted heads with the director having Merle Oberon playing the lead instead, with Leigh going off to do a little picture called Gone with the Wind.
I'm a week late but being a child from the 80s just had to pay tribute. Billie May Richards beloved voice of the 1964 Rudolph and Care Bears Tenderheart passed away at the age of 88. Even now in my 20s I still watch the 60s claymation Christmas movies on ABC Family. Therefore in memory, RIP Billie May Richards.
