Bathsheba Everdene, a willful, flirtatious, young woman, unexpectedly inherits a large farm and is romantically pursued by three very different men.
As of 2018, the Friar Waddon House in Weymouth, used for the exteriors of Boldwood's house is a bed and breakfast establishment. Bloxworth House in Dorset, used for Bathsheba's house, was built in 1608, and has remained in private hands ever since. At the time of the movie, it had fallen into a state of disrepair, but has since been restored, and as of 2018, is valued at four million pounds sterling.
He is married to his farm. That's the truth of it.
Temperence: There's no woman can touch him, Miss. 'Tis said he has no passionate parts.
The Valentine's Day greeting card that Bathsheba sends to Mr. Boldwood is of a contemporary 1960s style.
The 2009 Warner Home Video DVD restores 3 minutes of footage that were cut from the original release. The running time on this release is 171 minutes.
