Mrs. Miniver (1942)

A British family struggles to survive the first days of World War II.

DirWilliam Wyler CastGreer Garson , Walter Pidgeon , Teresa Wright .
134 min, , CC
CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: William Wyler. Greer Garson, Walter Pidgeon, Dame May Whitty, Teresa Wright, Reginald Owen, Henry Travers, Richard Ney, Henry Wilcoxon, Helmut Dantine, Peter Lawford. Moving drama about middle- class English family learning to cope with war. Winner of six Academy Awards--for Garson, Wright, director Wyler, and Best Picture, among others--this film did much to rally American support for our British allies during WW2, though its depiction of English life was decidedly Hollywoodized. Screenplay by Arthur Wimperis, George Froeschel, James Hilton, and Claudine West; based on Jan Struther's short stories. Sequel: THE MINIVER STORY. Also shown in computer-colored version.

D: Henry King. Tyrone Power, Maureen O'Hara, Laird Cregar, Thomas Mitchell, George Sanders, Anthony Quinn, George Zucco. Power is at his dashing best in this lively swashbuckler from the Rafael Sabatini novel about rival pirate gangs in the Caribbean. Sanders seems to be having fun cast against type as a scurrilous brigand. Enhanced by Alfred Newman's music and Leon Shamroy's Oscar-winning Technicolor cinematography.
