How Green Was My Valley (1941)

4 Stars (out of 4)

What's Mine Is Yours

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

The tough, but highly sentimental John Ford was one of the few great cinema artists who was appreciated in his time. He even won the third of his four Best Director Oscars for this great, corny look at a Welsh mining town and the family who tries to endure hard times. Young Roddy McDowall plays the youngest family member (who narrates the tale) and he gives an amazingly intuitive performance. Walter Pidgeon, Donald Crisp and Maureen O'Hara round out the cast. The DVD includes a fine featurette from "AMC Backstory," a full-length commentary track by Ford biographer Joseph McBride and Actress Anna Lee Nathan, a still gallery and trailers.
