Wuthering Heights (DVD)
Director Robert Fuest (The Abominable Dr. Phibes, The Devil's Rain) brings a gritty realism to this "lovely, scenically rich" (Newsweek) big-screen interpretation of Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights, the classic tale of a torturous and torrid love affair. Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights, License to Kill) plays the feral Heathcliff alongside Anna Calder-Marshall (Anna Karenina, Male of the Species) as the strong-willed Cathy.
The film's supporting players include Harry Andrews (Alexander the Great), Pamela Brown (Cleopatra), Julian Glover (The Empire Strikes Back) and Hugh Griffith (Ben-Hur). John Coquillon (Straw Dogs, Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid) provides the atmospheric photography along with a haunting score by the renowned Michel Legrand (The Thomas Crown Affair).
