  • Stillborn Franchise: AIP had announced a sequel to the 1970 film, Return to Wuthering Heights, but it was not made.
  • Wag the Director: Ralph Fiennes insisted on including a scene in the 1992 film where Heathcliff bangs his head against a tree, pining for Cathy.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • 1970 version - Oliver Reed was considered for Heathcliff.
    • 1992 version - Christopher Eccleston auditioned for Heathliff and Uma Thurman auditioned for Cathy.
    • During the mid 1960s, Lindsay Anderson was desperately trying to persuade Richard Harris to star as Heathcliff, for his proposed retelling. Harris' reluctance, and the 1970 adaptation, put an end to his dream project.
