Mrs. Miniver by William Wyler( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1,160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This story of an average English middle-class family begins with the summer of 1939; when the sun shone down on a happy, careless people, who worked and played, reared their children and tended their gardens in that happy, easy-going England that was so soon to be fighting desperately for her way of life and for life itself."--Title screens. [The film] dramatizes the effect of the Second World War on the English at home. Mrs. Kay Miniver's tranquil domestic existence is torn to shreds by the winds of war: her husband, Clem, disappears on a secret volunteer mission; eldest son, Vin, joins the RAF; and the village faces regular German bombings with a typically British stiff-upper-lip. Embodying understated British courage in the face of danger, Mrs. Miniver's mission is to stay alive, and keep her family together with hope, strength, and dignity

"Title springs from plot gimmick built around insurance companies paying fees for the return of stolen valuables so they won't have to stand a total loss. Barry Sullivan is an insurance attorney, struggling along until he turns in-betweener after his girl friend, Arlene Dahl, walks out on him to marry Dick Simmons. Coin is rolling in until Miss Dahl again appears and makes a new pitch for Sullivan, temporarily stalling Jean Hagen's play for the attorney. New pitch gets Sullivan off base long enough for Miss Dahl and Simmons to pull a doublecross that has both the cops and crooks out to bump off the go-between. He wises up in time, however, to realize he has been taken and do something about it. ... There's a neat twist or two in the story, such as the holdup of a ladies' lounge in a theatre by two crooks dressed as femmes, and having the leader of the insurance theft ring as an underwater swimmer who likes to bump off his victims by holding them on the bottom of his pool"--Variety review by Brog., June 13, 1951
