How Green Was My Valley, a 1941 film directed by John Ford, follows a Welsh clan as they navigate political and social upheavals at the beginning of the twentieth century. Huw Morgan (Roddy McDowall), now a grown man, narrates the story of his youth in a coal mining town in South Wales. Huw's father, Gwilym Morgan (Donald Crisp), has worked in the mines for years. While his family is not rich, they are satisfied with their humble way of life. The Morgans' happiness is threatened when Mr. Morgan decides not to join a strike organized by the new coal miners' union. Huw's three older brothers, also coal miners, are in favor of the strike and move out of the Morgan home in protest. Huw's sister Angharad (Maureen O'Hara) also creates trouble for the family when she strikes up an affair with the preacher, Mr. Gruffydd (Walter Pidgeon), causing a scandal in the small town. The once close-knit family finds their relationships fraying, and it may take a tragic accident to reunite them. How Green Was My Valley won five Academy Awards, including Best Picture.moreless
