That almost impossible feat, a great war picture that photographs the inner meaning, instead of the outward realism of World War II.

A poignant story of the joys and sorrows, the humor and pathos of middle-class family life in wartime England.

The most famous and perhaps most effective propaganda film of World War II.

Classic soap opera in which good old British understatement has a field day, everybody is frightfully nice, and sentimentality is wrapped up in yards of tasteful gloss.

Certainly it is the finest film yet made about the present war, and a most exalting tribute to the British, who have taken it gallantly.

It's one of a few highly regarded contemporaneous motion pictures to deal frankly with the domestic aspects of World War II.
