Mrs. Miniver

Mrs. Miniver
Release Date: December 1, 1942
Director: William Wyler
Actors: Greer Garson, Walter Pidgeon, Teresa Wright, Dame May Whitty, Reginald Owen, Henry Travers, Henry Wilcoxon, and Richard Ney

     Greer Garson, and her costar who played her son, Richard Ney, ended up getting married after the movie was made. They did not marry for long, but they fell in love while making this, even though Greer Garson was old enough to drink (even now) when he was born.

     This movie follows the Miniver family. They live in England during WWII. They go to church every sunday, try their best to survive against bombs and being caught under the light of search officers in the air. The eldest son of the family joins the Air Force, and also falls in love with a very rich woman's granddaughter. The rich woman is the winner every year for a rose competition. Mrs. Miniver has a rose that is named after her from a man that works at the train station. This movie is well loved by many and also had five huge nominations.
