    Yes, an excellent film, it's under-rated.

It was produced by Michael Balcon of Ealing Studios and served as unofficial propaganda for the war effort. It tells of how an English village is taken over by German paratroopers. It reflects the greatest potential nightmare of many Britons of the time, although the threat of German invasion had largely receded by that point.






    Starring Leslie Banks, Mervyn Johns(who also narrates), Basil Sydney, C.V. France, Valerie Taylor, Thora Hird, Patricia Hayes and David Farrar.

    The film reinforced the message that civilians should be vigilant against fifth columnists and that "careless talk costs lives". It was based on a short story by the author Graham Greene entitled "The Lieutenant Died Last". By the time the film was released the threat of invasion had subsided somewhat, but it was still seen as an effective piece of propaganda, and its reputation has grown over the years. It has been noted that by opening and closing in a predicted future where not only had the war been won but a (fictitious) full-scale German invasion of Britain defeated, and by presenting a scenario where all echelons of British society unite for the common good (the lady of the manor sacrifices herself without hesitation, for example), the film's message was morale-boosting and positive rather than scaremongering. Anthony Quinn, a film critic for The Independent on Sunday, commented in 2010: "It subtly captures an immemorial quality of English rural life—the church, the local gossip, the sense of community—and that streak of native 'pluck' that people believed would see off Hitler".
    Propaganda or otherwise, it's a good film. It's been shown on TV a few times of late.

    The Captain's Paradise, 1953.. Directed by Anthony Kimmins and stars Alec Guinness, Yvonne De Carlo and Celia Johnson.





    The film was a UK hit, and after a few changes to get it past the US censors(him being a bigamist for one), it out did all other Guinness films making over $1m in USA alone.

    The Secret Of My Success, 1987. directed by Herbert Ross and starring Michael J. Fox and Helen Slater. Fred Gwynne(Herman Munster) has a nice part too.







    This was a big Box office hit

    The House on 92nd Street, 1945. Directed by Henry Hathaway and stars William Eythe and Lloyd Nolan.







    The movie, shot mostly in New York City, was released shortly after the end of World War II. The House on 92nd Street was made with the full cooperation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), whose director, J. Edgar Hoover, appears during the introductory montage. Also, the FBI agents shown in Washington, D.C. were played by actual agents. The film's semidocumentary style inspired other films, including The Naked City and Boomerang.

    Its obviously a bit of a love-in for the fbi and govt of the day, and showing their work against the Germans' 5th column, but in its day was well recieved and its an interesting film.

    Just ordered 'Primal Fear' 1996 on DVD. With Richard Gere, Edward Norton and Laura Linney, tremendous courtroom thriller, with a chilling turn by Norton..

    I've been wanting to see this again for a long time. (I read the William Deihl book too, that was also great)

    Never seen that will have to look out for it. I like a good courtroom drama. Probably due to watching 'Crown Court' when I was off school sick.
