The Proud Valley Starring Paul Robeson

UK, 1940, Rialto Pictures/Criterion Collection, DVD, Black & White, 76 min

An Ealing Studios film, THE PROUD VALLEY is actually one of the more anachronistic films in the series.  Politically radical, even by today's standards, the film tackles the thorny issue of coal pit closures, one that continues to resonate throughout Wales' socioeconomic history.

Legendary baritone, actor and activist Paul Robeson plays the revealingly named David Goliath, a role that forms the galvanizing force of the film (it was tailored to highlight his vocal prowess), as well as its emotional gravitas.
