Cathy and Heathcliff sit upon Peniston Crag (aka Peniston Crags, Penistone Crag, Penistone Craggs), their Castle, where she is his Queen and he is her Brave Knight.
Unfortunatley, this is not the beginning of Wuthering Heights I wanted. That has been removed. It does includes the beautiful theme song but not the howling winds that magnify the traveller's concerns. Still the Theme is there and I thank the contributor. The images are spectacular and it is a wonderful example of visual art.
This is one of the most beautiful films I've ever seen. The casting is perfect, the story line heartbreaking, yet brilliant.
This story by Emily Bronte makes one want to weep as Cathy and Heathcliff destroy each other with their wild passion. But you must make sure that you see the original movie, starring Sir Lawrence Olivier and Merle Oberon. No remake will ever be the same.
I've always loved this picture. Cathy looks in on the Linton's party and wants to be like them. She says "Isn't it wonderful?...Isn't she beautiful? That's the kind of dress I'll wear. And you will have a red velvet coat and silver buckles on your shoes. Oh Heathcliff! Will we? Will we ever?" But look at Heathcliff! His expression is one of disbelief and confusion! Is this what Cathy wants, when they could be together in their more simple life? After looking in, he looks back at her, then looks in again. He is quite puzzled.
Ponden Hall was thought to be the basis of Thrushcross Grange, of which Cathy became enthralled and obsessed, and so began the gradual dissolution of her relationship with Heathcliff and the resulting destruction of their love. Yet that love remained beyond other marriages and even death. Cathy and Heathcliff were as One.
