Trivia

Richard Waring, who created the role of Morgan on stage in America was signed by Warner Bros. but he was drafted before shooting began and had to be replaced by John Dall. Veteran actor Gareth Hughes was then living in a monastery. An agreement was found with his religious superior so that he could serve as the Welsh dialect coach. See more »

One of the Best Movies of All Time!!!
24 October 2001 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

The Corn is Green is one of my favorite movies and for the longest time I never knew the title of it. Bette Davis is wonderful as the teacher who unleashes the genius of Morgan Evans, a Welsh mining town's prodigy. There are so many obstacles that Morgan must overcome, and to see him do this is wonderful. Every time I watch it I am still amazed at Bessie's devilishness and I just love the actress's voice! It is so interesting. Everything in this film makes me feel all good inside and no movie collection is complete without it. The Corn is Green deserves five stars, two thumbs up, and a perfect ten. Everyone should watch this movie. It gives you a new perspective on the world, and even on the life of people at one time in history. I truly love The Corn is Green and if I had not seen it, I would not be who I am today.
