I think I fell in love with Bronwyn then. Perhaps it is foolish to think a child could fall in love. But I am the child that was, and nobody knows how I felt, except only me.
After the whistle blows about another mine accident, the mother runs out with her daughter-in-law Bronwyn. When she starts to run, and in the first shot at the mine, she has no scarf, neither on her head nor around her shoulders. By the second shot, she suddenly has a black scarf on her shoulders, which she later puts on her head for the iconic line about seeing her husband and her late son Ivor in heaven with God. But this scarf just materialized out of nowhere.
The British version of this film was narratted by Rhys Williams instead of Irving Pichel
