"The scene is set when a ragged gypsy bundle, the child Heathcliffe, is brought to Wuthering Heights. As the passionate boy grows into the brooding man, his tangled love for the troubled Cathy unfolds and the story races to its tragic conclusion on the snow covered moors. Cliff Richard caused a sensation when he announced his plan to fulfill a lifelong ambition and bring Emily Brontes brooding, obsessive character to the stage. With lyrics by Tim Rice and music composed by John Farrar. Cliff and the theatre lovers countrywide provided the critics wrong and made the production a record-breaking success. Heathcliff The devil incarnate or a misunderstood man? Judge for yourself ..."--Container

Trama : Stati Uniti, anni Sessanta Sandy Olsson, si è appena trasferita in America dall'Australia per iniziare la scuola nel liceo Rydell. Sandy ha appena terminato le vacanze estive, durante le quali si è innamorata di un ragazzo americano, Danny Zuko, che ritrova sorprendentemente anche nella sua nuova scuola. L'atteggiamento di Danny, tuttavia, dopo un'iniziale e piacevole sorpresa, si impronta ad un bullesco distacco per non sfigurare davanti al suo gruppo di amici che lo considerano un duro. Sandy, delusa ed incoraggiata dalle sue nuove amiche, le Pink Ladies, comincia a flirtare con l'atletico Tom, causando la gelosia di Danny, il quale, per recuperare il terreno perduto con la ragazza, comincia a frequentare il maggior numero possibile di sport per entrare in forma e superare la concorrenza di Tom. Nonostante i risultati siano disastrosi, Sandy è attratta dalla tenera goffaggine sportiva di Danny e accetta di recarsi con lui al ballo della scuola. Durante il ballo, però, Danny incontra una sua vecchia fiamma, Cha Cha Di Grigorio con la quale vince la gara di ballo, evento che causa la gelosia di Sandy a cui Danny deve porre rimedio regalandole il suo anello come pegno d'amore. Il regalo dell'anello induce Danny a pensare che possa essere il preludio per un contatto fisico più approfondito, ma Sandy fugge inorridita dal drive-in in cui è stato tentato l'approccio. Danny capisce però di essere veramente innamorato di Sandy e canta tutta la sua malinconia. Intanto è costretto a sfidare il leader della banda degli Scorpion, Leo e a batterlo in una gara di velocità con automobili potenti: Sandy assiste alla corsa tifando per lui ed è un sintomo di riavvicinamento. L'anno scolastico termina e durante la festa per la conclusione delle lezioni, Sandy si presenta tutta vestita di pelle, provocando la reazione stupita ed affascinata di Danny, il quale in scena un'ultima danza con la ragazza che ne sancisce la definitiva unione
