William Wyler directs Hollywood legend Olivia De Havilland (Gone With The Wind) and an all-star cast in this 1949 screen classic that won 4 Academy Awards®, including Best Actress.

Catherine is the only heir to her stern father's (Sir Ralph Richardson, Dr. Zhivago) vast estate.

Seven years later Morris returns and a wiser Catherine plots her revenge.
