Directed with a keen sense of ambiguity by William Wyler (The Best Years of Our Lives), this film based on a hit stage adaptation of Henry James's Washington Square pivots on a question of motive.

When shy, fragile Catherine Sloper (Olivia De Havilland, in a heart-breaking, Oscar-winning turn), the daughter of a wealthy New York doctor, begins to receive calls from the handsome spendthrift Morris Townsend (Montgomery Clift), she becomes possessed by the promise of romance. Are his smouldering professions of love sincere, as she believes they are? Or is Catherine's calculating father (Ralph Richardson) correct in judging Morris a venal fortune seeker?

A graceful drawing room drama boasting Academy Award-winning costume design by Edith Head (Roman Holiday), The Heiress is also a piercing character study riven by emotional uncertainty and lacerating cruelty, in a triumph of classic Hollywood filmmaking at its most psychologically nuanced.

The Heiress is given the Criterion treatment with a restored 4K digital transfer and uncompressed monaural soundtrack by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on 17th June 2019.
