Raving over a Classic Wuthering Heights!  
I think it's time I re watch the brilliance of Wuthering Heights. It's been to long and talking of things that make you cry the end speech of Heathcliff to Cathy as he stands over her is just so romantic,heartbreaking and creepyish. But to have someone feel for you what he feels for her most men would roll their eyes but I melt inside at these words...

Be with me always. Take any form, drive me mad, only do not leave me in this dark alone where I cannot find you."

"I cannot live without my life! I cannot die without my soul!"

This is just shiver worthy for me.

Also Laurence Olivier was so young and gorgeous in this film. What a heartthrob :)

I'm with you here: 'I have to remind myself to breathe - almost to remind my heart to beat!'
Such a beautiful book.
The Oliver/Oberon version is only half the book though, but no less wonderful for it.

Suddenly overcome with the need for some Heathcliff!

Oh Heathcliff my stunning tragic gorgeous man.

After Cathy dies, Heathcliff goes on to make her daughter's life a misery!

He's a big old smouldering meany!

Well I should read the book because they only person he destoyes in the movie is David Niven's sister because she marries him. I didn't know there was a daughter at all.

Oh in the movie he is a cold hard heartless bastard when Cathy dies. He is only happy again in death.

I LOVE that version of Wuthering Heights! I haven't seen it in years. I need to read the book again.

Gorgeous words, I agree. This is one of the best romance novels.

I agree and no one was more beautiful than a young Laurence in his day.

Of coarse I also say that about a young Tony Curtis who is right next to him in looks. They are both in the Dictonary under beauty :)

I read a book about Vivien Leigh years ago. She was married to Laurence Olivier at one time, but they divorced. She had a lot of emotional issues and died fairly young of tuberculosis (I think she was about 55 when she died). It was tragic.

I used to read a lot of books about the old, classic movie stars. It was magic. Olivier was gorgeous and extremely talented, I agree.

I read a book or something were Laurence said they had 20 years of marraige 10 were heaven and 10 were hell.

Some of the hell for Vivien was that her husband paraded his male lovers all over the place and brought them home. Discrecion was not his thing I guess.

The movie is wonderful, but the book kind of ruined Heathcliff for me:( I was on his side until after Cathy's death...

Well I should read the book then but they in the movie were both so stupid with their choices I wanted to slap them.

They couldn't stop by ruining each other they had to drag others down with them. Everyone was destroyed and miserable in the movie. But still a gorgeous brilliant film. One tearjearker I watch over and over and always cry.

I have read the book, but I must admit to finding it more creepy than romantic.

A young Laurence Olivier on the other hand is far from creepy! :)

Mmmm yes I can understand that but it could also be looked at as very unhealthy. But it calls to my romantic to the point of crazed obsession and a part of me will always pant over that with any pairing I enjoy ;)
