The Corn Is Green

(CBS, 1/29/1979, 120 mins). In this remake of the 1945 Bette Davis movie, reuniting Katharine Hepburn and director George Cukor for the 10th time in 37 years (he directed her in her first move, “Bill of Divorcement”), Lilly Moffat, the strong-willed spinster teacher, goes again on her mission to educate the illiterate youth of a turn-of-the-century North Wales mining community and finds one with a spark of genius. Hepburn won an Emmy Award nomination for her performance, as did costume designer David Walker. Ivan Davies’ script, adapted from Emlyn Williams’ play, originally was credited to James Costigan.
