Series: Cinema Classics
In tribute to iconic Hollywood actress Maureen O'Hara, who passed away on October 24 at the age of 95, Cinema Classics presents one of her most unforgettable films, John Ford's HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY!
HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY (1941): Huw Morgan (Roddy McDowall), the academically inclined youngest son in a proud family of Welsh coal miners, witnesses the tumultuous events of his young life during a period of rapid social change. At the dawn of the 20th century, a miners' strike divides the Morgan family: the sons demand improvements, and the father (Donald Crisp) doesn't want to rock the boat. Meanwhile, Huw's eldest sister, Angharad (Maureen O'Hara), pines for the new village preacher, Mr. Gruffydd (Walter Pidgeon). Winner of five Academy Awards, including Best Picture!
