A CD and a book both related to Wuthering Heights 1939:
Majestic Hollywood: The Greatest Films of 1939 by Mark A. Vieira
Running Press (December 10, 2013)
ISBN-13: 978-0762451562

1939 was a watershed year. The Great Depression was barely over; economics, politics, and culture braced for war. There was a lull before the storm and Hollywood, as if expecting to be judged by posterity, produced a portfolio of masterpieces. No year before or since has yielded so many beloved works of cinematic art: The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Gunga Din, Only Angels Have Wings, Destry Rides Again, Beau Geste, Wuthering Heights, The Wizard of Oz, Stagecoach, Ninotchka, Goodbye, Mr. Chips, Dark Victory, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, The Women, and of course, Gone With the Wind.
The April 1939 chapter contains an article about the film.
