Ladies & Gentlemen. Welcome to The Envelope Podcast. Here on The Envelope, we discuss & review every Best Picture Winner in the Academy Awards History.
On this episode, we discuss the fourteenth Best Picture Winner: “HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY.”
“How Green Was My Valley” follows Huw Morgan, the academically inclined youngest son in a proud family of Welsh coal miners, who 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 Morgans: the sons of the family demand improvements, while the father doesn’t want to rock the boat. Meanwhile, Huw’s eldest sister, Angharad, pines for the new village preacher, Mr. Gruffydd. Directed by John Ford, the film stars Roddy McDowall as Huw Morgan, Donald Crisp as the father (Gwilym Morgan), Maureen O’Hara as Angharad Morgan, and Walter Pidgeon as Mr. Gruffydd
