Description by

Steel separates 1873 Pittsburgh into rich and poor, master and worker, powerful and powerless. On one side is Paul Scott, the progressive son of a steel mill owner. On the other is Mary Rafferty, daughter of an embittered laborer who was crippled in a mill accident. When Mary takes a post as housemaid at the Scott mansion, she and Paul fall desperately in love. But a bloody strike may tear the city -- and the lovers -- apart.

Surging with passion and strife, featuring a commanding cast that includes Greer Garson, Lionel Barrymore and Gregory Peck (the relative newcomer created a sensation as the romantic, intense Paul), The Valley of Decision is a prime example of prestige filmmaking during Hollywood's Golden Age.

Product Description:

Romance knows no class boundaries as the son of a wealthy mine owner falls in love with his family's maid. As always, there's a catch--the girl's father and brother were killed in the mine. Based on Marcia Davenport's 1942 novel. Academy Award Nominations: 2, including Best Actress Greer Garson.

Plot Synopsis:

This adaptation of Marcia Davenport's romantic novel tells the story of Mary Rafferty, a young Irish woman who works as a maid for the wealthy Scott family. Although the clan has become rich through the steel mine they own in Pittsburgh, they face many problems over the years -- many of which Mary helps them solve. In time, she becomes just like a member of the family, but never stops dreaming that one day she will win the love of Paul, the patriarch's son...
