      Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Irving Rapper's screen version of Emlyn Williams semi-autobiographical play is well acted by Bette Davis as the spinster-teacher, but is too theatrical, sentimental and conventional. Rated: B- Jan 5, 2012 Full Review Carol Cling Las Vegas Review-Journal Rated: 4/5 Feb 13, 2004 Full Review Christopher Null Filmcritic.com Rated: 2.5/5 Mar 7, 2001 Full Review Read all reviews

      Murty C "The Corn Is Green" (1945) is wonderful little movie about how a spirited lady (Bette Davis) brings education to a Welsh mining village. Fine acting all round (a memorable performance by Bette Davis and Oscar nominated performances by a couple of young actors), taut screenplay and dialogues, and a focus on character development makes this a welcome movie on a winter's night. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/05/22 Full Review steve d Sweet and well acted. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Bette Davis=Great Performance. One of her best. John Dall=Brilliant Performance. Nigel Bruce=Typical character role for Bruce. Wonderful story! Chorus singing is inspirational! Fast paced. Good direction & overall production above par! God bless progressives. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review s r Feel good story about an educated woman going to wales. She then educates miners despite the class barrier. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Charming movie with an always outstanding performance by Bette Davis Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Started out not liking Davis as a terribly correct English school mistress but the story develops into something really worth watching.
