  • The Valley of Decision is a film set in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA in the late 19th century. It tells the story of a young Irish house maid who falls in love with the son of her employer, a local steel mill owner. The romance between Paul and Mary is endangered when Mary's family and friends, all steel mill workers, go on strike against Paul's father. The movie stars Greer Garson as Mary Rafferty, Gregory Peck as Paul Scott, Donald Crisp, Lionel Barrymore, Preston Foster, Marsha Hunt, Gladys Cooper, Reginald Owen, Dan Duryea and Jessica Tandy. The film was nominated for two Academy Awards for Best Actress in a Leading Role and Best Music, Scoring of a Dramatic or Comedy Picture. This was Garson's sixth nomination and her fifth consecutive, a record for most consecutive Best Actress nominations that still stands as of today. The movie was adapted by Sonya Levien and John Meehan from the novel by Marcia Davenport. The film was directed by Tay Garnett. The novel had previously been filmed in 1916 with a young Constance Bennett. Besides being a romance, the film has messages about social issues surrounding Pittsburgh at the time.
