Critic Reviews for The Corn Is Green
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.
