Mrs. Miniver (1942) DVD9
Based on a book of stories by Jan Struther, the movie concerns an "average English middle-class family," as the prologue tells us, who are stirred to display their courage during World War II. Beginning in 1939, just before Germany's invasion of Poland led to Great Britain's inevitable entrance into the War and continuing until the time of the film's release and America's entrance into the War, the story centers on four people: a husband and wife, their son, and their new daughter-in-law. They are all affected by the conflict around them, and each plays his and her own part in combating the danger.

Heroine, Mrs. Kay Miniver (a glowingly beautiful Greer Garson), is a middle-class Englishwoman whose tranquil domestic existence is torn to shreds by the winds of war. As eldest son Vin (Henry Wilcoxon) flies off to join the battle with the RAF, and husband Clem (Walter Pidgeon) disappears on a secret volunteer mission to Dunkirk, it's up to Mrs. Miniver to protect the home front and keep house and family together during the dark times ahead.
