The Brave Don't Cry

By rights a title like this should herald some high-flown best-seller garbage, but in fact this is quite a decent little film from the short-lived Group 3 venture, produced by John Grierson and John Baxter: a semi-documentary reenactment of the 1950 Knockshinnoch mine disaster in Scotland. Sober, careful, making excellent use of locations and a cast drawn largely from the Glasgow Citizens' Theatre, it is only occasionally inclined to over-emote.
