REVIEWS:





"It is hard to believe that a picture could be made within the heat of present strife which would clearly, but without a cry for vengeance, crystallize the cruel effect of total war upon a civilized people. Yet that is what has been magnificently done in Metro's 'Mrs. Miniver,' which came to the Music Hall yesterday. Perhaps it is too soon to call this one of the greatest motion pictures ever made...but 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. .... Greer Garson's performance as Mrs. Miniver glows with compassion and womanly strength. Her encounter with the German flier conveys as fine an emotional conflict as you'll ever see—on the screen, anyhow. .... One cannot speak too highly of the superb understatement and restraint exercised throughout this picture. The four writers who prepared the script have given it a natural, literate quality which matches the very best work in their craft. .... And William Wyler has directed with a
sensitivity that rarely shows in films. Every episode is made a
full experience, with rich and vibrant overtones. The pulse of
real humanity beats strong throughout the film."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; June 5, 1942
