Movie Info

The true star of this film is a stately old manor house in London, built in 1804 by a British admiral and blitzed in 1940 by one Adolf Hitler. Through the portals of this house pass a vast array of Britons, from high-born to low.

Audience Reviews for Forever and a Day

Conceived as a morale riser for an England under siege this accomplishes that well, that it's full to bursting with the cream of the British and a smattering of American film world at the time makes it a very special viewing experience. Parts of it are achingly affecting.

[font=Book Antiqua][size=5][color=black][/color][/size][/font] [font=Book Antiqua][size=5][color=#000000]Hey All,[/color][/size][/font] [font=Book Antiqua][size=5][color=#000000] [color=black][font='Book Antiqua']I've got three new updates for ya all. The first one is this movie I had rented from Net Flex on the basis that Buster Keaton was in it. Before I say any thing else this movie was pretty good. Any who I watched and watched, finally Buster was in it for only three minutes as a plumber. Not even a speaking role at that. After I got over my little heart break, I did enjoy the movie. It's about this American who sold this house back to original owners descendants during WWII. The movie takes you through the different years that the house went through and how the American family ended up owning it. I really enjoyed it. There isn't any extra stuff on this DVD but some movies don’t need it.[/font][/color] [/color][/size][/font][font=Book Antiqua][size=5][color=#000000]Fritz ;) [/color][/size][/font]
