Product Description

How Green Was My Valley' DVD, John Ford (1941), New & Sealed


Description:

This is widely considered to be the best film of a golden year for films, 1941. The academy awards collected are impressive. And it is a fine film. But it's a weeper, a true sobber. Charles Dickens would feel at home in this ultimately tragic story of a dreamy little mill town in Wales turned into a polluted nightmare, and a lovely family transformed by hardship, sexual frustration, and death. Maureen O'Hara and little Roddy McDowell were especially good. John Ford was at his best. On the other hand, Walter Pidgeon was a bit hammy in one of his last scenes, and all of the characters in the film are strictly one dimensional.

There is a curious 'mistake' in the concluding minute of the movie. The father, Donald Crisp, has been killed in a mine accident, leaving the film to conclude in sadness. So we go to a flashback of how the valley once was green and everyone was young and happy. Suddenly we see the father walking with his young son (the film's narrator), limping and with a cane. Did he survive? How? Was everyone, including his wife, mistaken? The father had never before been hurt until his death! Did the boys on the third floor at 20th Century Fox try to brighten up the film's ending?

Still, this is an above average film, designed for the whole family.
