How Green Was My Valley (1941)

Director : John Ford
Cast : Walter Pidgeon,Maureen O'Hara,Anna Lee,Donald Crisp,Huw Morgan
Genre: Drama

This classic revolves around a tightly knitted mining family residing in a beautiful Welsh valley (though actual shooting took place in US only). Strength of the movie lies in it's touching voice-over narration.

The times are changing and the pastoral countryside has to deal with the advent of modern industrialization.
Sons have to move out of their families, a once peaceful neighborhood is brewing with tensions, fathers have to take tough decisions, and so on. But among all this the love--within families--and harmony--with thy neighbor--still prevail, showing a way to live in a changing world.

Donald Crisp, as a proud father of six siblings and a revered leader among miners delivers a power packed performance.

Wholesome cinema.
