Mrs. Miniver is on TCM tonight at 10:00 PM. Ever since seeing the film the first time I have been fascinated by it as I believe it represents something of what British home and hearth were like prior to WWII. I worked with a couple of Brits in California some years ago and they trashed the film as nothing but contrived rot, etc., etc. And these were older guys who had lived through the London bombings. I'd like to ask our British FL members what their take on the film is? Do you think its a classic or is it just phony propaganda? Is it representative of life in Britain during that period or not?
