How Green Was My Valley Reviews

November 16, 2015
Captures an idyll of youth that has been lost to the corrosive practices of modern business.
February 18, 2015
One of the outstanding film productions of the year.
February 19, 2013
The acting is strong, and Arthur Miller's Oscar-winning photography gives the images a spooky luster, but a little bit of Ford's salt-of-the-earth piety goes an awfully long way.

Because his recollections ring true, they are certain to evoke a similar nostalgia in all but the most slab-sided of moviegoers.

How Green Was My Valley is one of the year's better films, a sure-fire critic's picture and, unlike most features that draw kudos from crix, this one will also do business.
December 12, 2006
Expert performances from Donald Crisp, Walter Pidgeon, Maureen O'Hara, and a host of brilliant character actors enhance a magnificent movie experience.
June 24, 2006
An elegant and eloquent film, nevertheless, even if the characteristically laconic Fordian poetry seems more contrived here.
May 20, 2003
You can never expect to see a film more handsomely played.
January 1, 1941
If not for the inevitable comparisons to Citizen Kane, How Green Was My Valley might have aged better.
