Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Emily Bronte's novel tells a haunting tale of love and tragedy. Samuel Goldwyn's film version retains all of the grim drama of the book. It's heavy fare throughout.
One of the greatest movies of all time!
This movie comes from the year of some of the greatest novies of all time. TCM calls it a masterpiece and I have to agree. A first rate cast, great directing, sets, costumes and a classic story makes this a movie to own by any true movie fan. If you don;t want to buy it, at lest rent it. Once you've seen it, you will probaby buy it.
