More Brontë alerts for today February 26:

1. In Glasgow:
Glasgow Film Festival
Wuthering HeightsWed 26 Feb GFT 1

Nominated for eight Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Actor, William Wyler's celebrated version of the Emily Brontë classic captures all the wild romantic spirit and gothic melodrama of the novel. A stranger's visit to the gloomy, grief-laden Wuthering Heights is what prompts a telling of the doomed romance between fickle, haughty Cathy and the brooding, darkly handsome Heathcliff who grows to love her with a passion that overwhelms them both. Laurence Olivier is a memorable Heathcliff and Merle Oberon gives the performance of her career as Cathy. The brilliant cinematography by Gregg Toland deservedly won the film's only Oscar.
