excellent detective work there, Ellemeno!



But wait, I found more!  :)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_number-one_singles_in_Australia_during_the_1970s#1978

Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights" was #1 in Australia for three weeks in 1978, from May 22nd through the week of June 5th.  And when was Heath conceived?  Yes, that's right, one month later, in July, 1978.

And, according to IMDb, Heath was in an Australian kids' movie called Paws in 1997 as a character named Oberon.  The full movie is available on Hulu (also through a link on the IMDb page below). 

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119870/

The name "Oberon" is a funny coincidence, since Merle Oberon's most famous part was in the 1939 version of Wuthering Heights, the filmed version of the book where Heath's name may have purportedly come from (Heathcliff).




Going back to Paws, I've been watching it this evening, and it sucks, but you can skip the junk and find Heath in the following spots.  In the movie, he plays the Shakespeare character Oberon, in Midsummer Night's Dream.  Sometimes he delivers his lines off-camera, but it's distinctly his voice.  He definitely has a small part.

He first appears at 41:12.





Then at 55:53.

Most excellent, Miss Meno :).

Thanks for all the stuff you posted. I've always liked Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights, many years before I ever heard of Heath.  :)

I loved Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights, years on years before I'd heard of Heath. Had a friend read a passage at my wedding!

I know, I ordered a copy because of you. But I didn't get into it on the first few pages and then must have misplaced it somewhere. Can't find it anymore.

That's nice, Chrissi!  :-*  Yes, it does take a while to get into -- it's written in a "framing device," and the frame isn't as compelling as the actual story. If you find your copy, try again, but give it a couple of chapters. It's sometimes called the greatest novel in the English language. And while some "great novels" can be pretty hard to get through, WH actually becomes pretty compelling after a while.
