How Green Was My Valley

How Green Was My Valley

 

A close-knit Welsh family see their lives slowly dismantled by the outside forces of greedy mine owners, small-minded gossip and the economic and environmental decline of their hometown. Adapted from Richard Llewellyn’s novel, and once again showing Ford’s concern with family and the man on the street, the film scooped five Oscars©; infamously beating Citizen Kane.

WINNER: Oscars© (Best Director, Picture, Cinematography, Art Direction)
