In 1942, with the Germans invading throughout Europe, William Wyler directed MRS. MINIVER, as a means of getting the United States into the war effort. Starring the popular team of Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon, the movie tells the story of how the war effects a family living on the outskirts of London and covers everything from the son's enlisting, to the nightly bombing , the invasion of Dunkirk, the capture of a German flier and the tragic loss of a family member. Winning the Oscar for Best Picture, as well as Best Actress for Garson and Best Supporting Actress for Teresa Wright, "Mrs. Miniver" is filled with Wyler's trademark attention to detail, pacing and the coaxing of brilliant performances from his actors. It's a prime example of the kind of high gloss melodramas of MGM in its prime and because of Wyler's direction, is still a powerful piece of propaganda today.
