A poster from one of my favorite films, the movie that beat CITIZEN KANE (among others) to be named Best Picture of 1941, John Ford's HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY. Crisp won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Gwilym Morgan in this film-- the only time he would be so honored. The picture itself received five of the ten Academy Awards for which it was nominated. This masterpiece also stars Maureen O'Hara, Walter Pidgeon, Rhys Williams, and Roddy McDowall. Incidentally, the novel of the same name by Richard Llewellyn is well worth the read.

Posters from NATIONAL VELVET (1944) with Anne Revere, Elizabeth Taylor, Angela Lansbury and Mickey Rooney  and THE MAN FROM LARAMIE (1955), one of Jimmy Stewart's classic westerns with director Anthony Mann. 

One of his last films, Crisp played the mayor of Harringtontown in this great Disney adaptation of the Eleanor Porter story, POLLYANNA (1960). Hayley Mills starred in this family classic along with Jane Wyman, Nancy Olson, Agnes Moorehead, Adolphe Menjou and Karl Malden.
