​​Wuthering Heights (1939) is director William Wyler's somber tale of doomed and tragic love, conflicting passions, and revenge. It is considered one of Hollywood's all-time most romantic/drama classics. Filmed with haunting beauty, it is the first film dramatization of Emily Bronte's wildly passionate 1847 best-selling literary masterpiece, from a screenplay written by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur.Producer Samuel Goldwyn felt the black-and-white film was the favorite of all his productions. It is still considered the definitive version, and one of the greatest romantic films ever made. Bronte's novel tells about the eternal, smoldering love between two soul-mates: adopted gypsy boy Heathcliff (Lawrence Olivier) and manor-born Cathy (Merle Oberon), who loves both the stable-boy and her worldly neighbor Edgar (David Niven). The 1939 film was a critical success, earning eight Academy Award nominations in one of the most hotly-contested years ever often called "the greatest year in motion picture history." The nominations included: Best Picture, Best Actor (Laurence Olivier with his first career nomination), Best Supporting Actress (Geraldine Fitzgerald with her sole career nomination), Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Screenplay, Best Interior Decoration, and for Best Original Score by Alfred Newman which is unforgettable. It won one Academy Award for Gregg Toland's expressionistic, moody B/W cinematography.
