    I am confused about the number of oscars "How Green Was My Valley" got. IMDB says 5 wins out of 9 nominations and also the cover on the DVD. However the documentary on the DVD says 6 wins and 10 nominations. So what happened here?

    Actually, IMDB says 5 wins out of 10 noms. The insert in the Fox Studio Classics version of the film says the same thing.

    Here are the 5 it won:

    Picture
    Director
    Supporting Actor
    Cinematography (B&W)
    Art Direction - Interior Decoration (B&W)

    And these are the additional 5 nominations:

    Supporting Actress
    Editing
    Score
    Sound
    Screenplay

    I checked the offical Oscar site and it matches on the winners (doesn't show nominations).

    So it looks like the real count is 5 out of 10. If the docu says 6 out of 10 it must be mistaken.

    I meant 5 of 10 and 6 of 10. You are right about that. Anyway, here is a picture from the documentary. This section of it looks like it was from 1942:

    The same section is also on the trailer for the movie (which is probably where the documentary got it from).
