Directed by William Wyler | 1949

With Olivia de Havilland, Montgomery Clift, Ralph Richardson, Miriam Hopkins, Vanessa Brown

"Crackles with allusive life and fire in its tender and agonized telling of an extraordinarily characterful tale… The Heiress is one of the handsome, intense and adult dramas of the year."
—The New York Times

In Henry James’ proto-feminist novella Washington Square is transformed into a stark and engrossing chamber drama in this Hollywood literary adaptation par excellence (which earned Oscars for Olivia de Havilland’s enormously affecting performance and Aaron Copland’s score). When plain Jane spinster Catherine Sloper (de Havilland) falls madly in love with the dashing Morris Townsend (Clift), she defies her relentlessly critical father (Richardson)—but is her new suitor just after her money?
