World-Class Overacting By Richard Burton As Heathcliff In "Wuthering Heights" (1958)(video)


In 1958, DuPont Show Of The Month presented a live TV production of Emily Bronte's "Wuthering Heights."

But the world may not have been ready for a strapping young Richard Burton in the role of Heathcliff.

His extreme display of robust, mega-hammy overacting in the role is the stuff of legend... seen in these mind-boggling final moments of Heathcliff's shattering despair.

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it. Thanks for watching!
