You wrote a wonderful adaptation of Emily Bronte's "Wuthering Heights" for the movies. "I cannot live with my Life, and I cannot die without my Soul." My favorite line by Heathcliff after Cathy's death. Thank you. David

Thank you so much for stepping in for the re-writes to GWTW. Though Sidney Howard got full credit for the script, you took part in helping to complete the picture as a whole during periods when he was unable to. You'll be remembered always, Mr. Hecht.
