I fell in love with Anna Lee when I first saw her play Bronwyn in How Green Was My Valley. Ford gave her such a beautiful entrance that impressed young Huw (and me) so much. I was about Huw's age when I saw the film and was instantly smitten by Bronwyn's beauty and charm.
I hve been a long time Anna Lee fan myself! My love affair with her started when she was in the waning years of her career as the matriarch of the Quartrmaine family on General Hospital. At that time I knew little of her long, successful career in feature films. I have more than made up for that in subsequent years!Adding to my Anna Lee admiration story:
I first saw How Green Was My Valley in a 16mm print when I was around 11-12 years old, ca. 1961-62. I cried like a baby, which I was.
Next I saw it at the Carnegie Hall Cinema in a beautiful 35mm print. Unspoiled, unmarred print. I cried like a baby. I wasn't one.
Then I saw it at MoMA in a stunning, I repeat, stunning 35mm nitrate print. I cried like a baby because I had seldom seen anything as beautiful as Arthur Miller's B&W cinematography. And of course, Ford repeats Bronwyn's entrance at the end of the film, affording me another look at Anna Lee's beauty through my tears.
Thank you Ford, Miller and Lee for such a memory!
Not a clue. Go with what Travis says!Do you know what part of the world that poster is from? The United States release date for The Lion King was in June, so it's obviously not our poster because it says October.
