The Corn Is Green (1978)

My Rating

Movie Info

Welsh-born writer Emlyn Williams' 1938 play The Corn is Green originally starred Ethel Barrymore as L.C. Moffat, the strong-willed schoolteacher under whose guidance the illiterate Welsh teenager Morgan Evans matriculates as an honor student. Bette Davis played Moffat in the 1945 film version; this second filmization, made for television on location in North Wales, stars Katharine Hepburn. Morgan Evans is portrayed by newcomer Ian Saynor; the rest of the cast is populated by such old reliables

Ironically, Bette Davis was too young (36), when she played the spinsterish teacher in Warner's 1946 melodrama, and Katharine Hepburn too old (70) in this TV version, directed by George Cukor in what was their tenth (and last) collaboration.

Audience Reviews for The Corn Is Green

A late career triumph for both Kate and Cukor this marvelous TV version of the play Ethel Barrymore made famous years before feels like it was written with Hepburn in mind so well does the part fit her. High production values give it the feeling of a feature film and the performances are most enjoyable from all the actors. A wonderful story of the value of learning and the quest for knowledge along with the need to temper it with caring and human interest this is a reminder of the superior quality that used to be offed on American television and rarely is today. Beautiful location filming in Wales completes the charm of this fine offering. Well worth seeking out for anyone looking for superior entertainment.
