Wuthering Heights (1939)
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.
