Hollywood's first version: starring Merle Oberon, Laurence Olivier, and David Niven. This pre-World War II version won the 1940 Oscar for best cinematography in 1940, also receiving nominations for Best Actor in a Leading Role, Best Actress in a Supporting Role, Best Art Direction, Best Director, Best Music, Original Score, Best Picture, Best Writing, and Best Screenplay.
Since there haven't been enough film versions, a new one stars Quantum of Solace Bond-girl Gemma Arterton as Catherine and Gossip Girl's Ed Westwick as her dark, brooding lover. Word on the street: Natalie Portman pulled out of the starring role. Peter Webber will direct, along with the group behind the Oscar-nominated Girl With a Pearl Earring. All involved hope to profit from repeated references to Brontë's novel in the Twilight vampire saga by Stephenie Meyer.
