The Thirteenth Tale

It's the 1950s and 60s. A bunch of debauched aristocrats commit incest, neglect their kids, go mad and murder servants without the local authorities taking the slightest bit of notice. Apparently rural Yorkshire hasn't changed at all since the days of Cathy and Heathcliff.

It's a very silly story but effective as chain-yanking melodrama. I'm glad I ingested it as a movie because the book would have wasted a lot more time. Also the book doesn't have Vanessa Redgrave- who is surely our greatest living actor.
