How Green Was My Valley


Cinematographer: Arthur Miller

Dir. John Ford. 1941, 118 mins. 35mm. With Walter Pidgeon, Maureen O’Hara, Anna Lee, Donald Crisp, Roddy McDowall. John Ford’s breathtakingly beautiful and bittersweet film about a Welsh coal-mining family’s conflicts with the labor movement beat Citizen Kane for the 1941 Oscar for Best Picture (and Best Cinematography, Black-and-White). Experiencing this memory film, with its ravishing photography by Arthur Miller, projected on the big screen will convince any viewer that it deserved to win.
