This is the best movie depicting patriotism, honor and belief in something greater than yourself. Mrs Miniver was made during WW2 when it was ok to believe in your country and freedom. TCM doesnt show this often so dont miss it. Sunday May 13 at 3 pm EST

Before Hollywood turned their attention towards making movies, like “The North Star”, intended to gain sympathy for Stalin and the Bolsheviks.

Great movie. I worked at a National Park and stayed in Greer Garson’s (and Buddy Fogelson) old ranch house, “Forked Lightning Ranch”. Some very nice mission style furniture in the main house, and early design by “Pueblo Revival Style” architect John Gaw Meem.

An important classic, about how quickly normal can be lost.
Are these movies available on line?
. Mrs Miniver was made during WW2 when it was ok to believe in your country and freedom.
It was propaganda to get Americans behind efforts to support the British in the war. There was still a good deal of bad feeling in those days toward the Brits going back to the Revolution and the War of 1812.
It worked. And it was an excellent movie. One of my favorites from the war period.

It was one of my Mama’s favorite movies, but I’ve never seen it.

I saw this maybe 20 or 25 years ago and I remember so many dramatic scenes ... her husband going off to scout the shore in the family boat, the house being bombed while Mrs Miniver wears her Donna Reed dress, the return of the husband and shot up boat ... and all the patriotic scripting anyone could want.
Truly a masterpiece.

I love that movie.
I’ll watch anything with Greer Garson in it. Adore her.

Garson won the Oscar for Mrs. Miniver, but for my money she didn't do half the acting in that as she did in Random Harvest, which came out the same year. Surely she deserved the Oscar, but they gave it to her for the patriotic movie about the present war, rather than the one about the previous war.
