Valley of Decision, The (1945)

The Valley of Decision (1945), directed by Tay Garnett.

A mill town melodrama of 1873 Pittsburgh. Greer Garson, from a poor Irish family, becomes a maid at the big house of the mill owner. Unexpectedly, it is a friendly and happy place. Young Gregory Peck is the eldest son of the magnate, and he works hard on new ways of making steel. It's a tale of frustrated love, with labor disputes, murder, and struggle for control of the mill thrown in.

Not a bad example of the type, but unless you are a fan of the stars you can safely skip it.

There's something wrong with the sound mix: the music is quite a bit louder than the dialogue, but luckily they don't play at the same time.
