An American Romance

1944

King Vidor
Director
MGM
Studio

Epic story of the steel industry, told therough the eyes of an immigrant who rises to become an industry magnate. Foolishly cut by 30 minutes after its premiere, which destroyed the story and caused the film to become one of MGM's biggest flops. Good job there, Louis Mayer!
