Mrs Miniver DVD
Includes: "Mrs. Miniver": In the title role of this memorable spirit-lifter, Greer Garson gives a formidable performance, comforting children in a bomb shelter, capturing an enemy parachutist and delivering stuff-upper-lip British resolve. "An American In Paris": Gene Kelly, producer Arthur Freed, director Vincente Minnelli and screenwriter Alan Jay Lerner create entertainment for the ages.
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(R), including Best Picture, this memorable spirit-lifter about an idealized England that tends its prize-winning roses while confronting the terror of war struck a patriotic chord with American audiences and became 1942's #1 box-office hit.
