|Greer Garson and Walter Pigeon|
We see and hear about Dunkirk, as from the previous post : Just a Few Words. Seeing those young men, saved from absolutely certain death, fills me with pride. They were brave and dedicated to their countries.
The British people stood by them and gave the military all that they had.
One movie, Mrs. Miniver, released in 1942 presents the amazing commitment to these home bound men, women, and children.
"A moving drama about a middle-class English family learning to cope with war, told in a series of dramatic vignettes. The family, headed by the lovely and gracious matriarch, endures the departure of the father for the beaches at Dunkirk, the discovery of a wounded Nazi pilot, the death of the daughter-in-law in an air raid, and the entry of the son into the Royal Air Force."
The Film that Goebbels Feared :Winston Churchill credited Mrs Miniver with increasing American support for the war effort. A new programme finds out how the domestic drama changed history.
Greer Garson won the Best Actress for her phenomenal performance.
Please watch it. It would be a well spent 2 hours.
