    Description

    How Green Was My Valley Lot of Three Photos. How Green Was My Valley won 1941's Best Picture Academy Award, (topping, among other nominees, Citizen Kane) and John Ford received the Best Director prize (edging out, among others, Kane's Orson Welles). The film won three other Oscars as well, and this lot features three beautiful 11" x 14" stills from the beloved film. The first features Maureen O'Hara as Angahard and Anna Lee as Bronwyn, both flanking young Roddy McDowall as Huw. The second is a breathtakingly beautiful portrait of Maureen O'Hara, holding flowers; her backdrop is the Welsh mining town exterior set that 20th Century-Fox built on an 80-acre set near Malibu. The third shot is a variation on the second, again showcasing Ms. O'Hara's beauty. The second shot has a border framing the picture, and the first and third do not. The first shot has "EXCLUSIVE Please Credit 20th Century-Fox Film Corp." stamped on the back, and the first and third have a stamp on the verso from the Dell Publishing Company. O'Hara's name and the film's have been written on the back of pictures one and three. The sharpness and lighting in each still are remarkable. Wonderful images from a milestone John Ford film and one of the most memorable movies of the 1940s.
