Kay Miniver doesn’t fly a Spitfire in dogfights over London or ply the North Sea in a battleship but she’s doing her all for wartime England. And she does it so well that Winston Churchill would say Mrs. Miniver was more vital to the nation than a fleet of destroyers.
Winner of six Academy Awards® including Best Picture, this memorable spirit-lifter about an idealised England that tends its prize-winning roses while confronting the terror of war struck a patriotic chord with audiences and became 1942’s No.1 box-office hit. Greer Garson gives a formidable Oscar® - winning title-role performance, comforting children in a bomb shelter, capturing an enemy parachutist and delivering an inspirational portrait of stiff upper lip British resolve. When Hitler did his worst, Mrs. Miniver did her best.
