Far Out Magazine has compiled 'The ultimate beginner's guide to Laurence Olivier' listing his 'six definitive films'. And of course there's
Wuthering Heights (William Wyler, 1939)
An interesting adaptation of Emily Brontë’s famous novel, Wyler’s Wuthering Heights does not cover much of the narrative of the book but it manages to capture the atmospheric aura as well as the artistic sensibilities of the source material.
Olivier delivers a fantastic performance as Heathcliff, a tormented lover whose life is complicated by pressing sociopolitical realities. The film ended up earning eight Oscar bids including a Best Actor nomination for Olivier but it was Gregg Toland’s mesmerising cinematography that won. (Swapnil Dhruv Bose)
