War means war movies. Like the above, Noel Coward’s is patriotic, yes, propaganda, yes; but some great actors, and not simple tub thumping. Went the Day Well saw a British village invaded.
Movies didn’t just have to be straight war movies. In 1944, Laurence Olivier had returned from Hollywood, and made his famous version of Henry V.
By 1945, perhaps the greatest romantic movie ever made in Britain. Noel Coward again.
But the greatest World War Two movie of them all?
Well, it’s my favourite film. And am I allowed to say this? Has there ever been a more beautiful woman than Ingrid Bergman?
