Raised together on a remote moor, young Cathy (Merle Oberon) forges a powerful bond with stable boy Heathcliff (Laurence Olivier). When Cathy marries the well-to-do Edgar Linton (David Niven), the enraged Heathcliff vanishes, only to return years later, bent on reclaiming his lost love—or avenging his broken heart. An exemplar of Classical Hollywood romance, this passionate adaptation of Emily Brontë's novel was nominated for eight Academy Awards.
