Format:VHS Tape
"Mrs. Miniver", was without a doubt the most famous film to come out of the World War Two period and provided inspiration and courage to countless people across the globe either already suffering the effects of war or living in fear of it possibly coming. It is among my personal favourites and I never fail to be moved and inspired by the simple story contained in "Mrs. Miniver". Criticised as being dated, or overly sentimental. I believe its simple message of looking after your fellow man and being strong for others in times of adversity is ageless. Towering over "Mrs. Miniver",is the performance by Greer Garson as house wife Kay Miniver who's comfortable existence is changed forever as she and her family like countless others, face the prospect of war and it's consequences. It was a landmark performance that rightly became associated ever after with Greer Garson and endeared her to a whole generation of everyday people who identified with the dilemmas Kay Miniver faced in the movie.
Nowadays its hard to believe that Greer Garson was highly reluctant to undertake the role after MGM's former queen Norma Shearer turned it down. Afraid of being forever typed into playing noble self sacrifing women rather than the comedy characters she aspired to, it nevertheless was the best career decision she ever made and it also cemented her legendary association with fellow actor Walter Pidgeon who plays her loving husband Clem. Mrs. Miniver was responsible for making this pair the most popular screen team of the 1940's. Based on the serialised novel by Jan Struther "Mrs. Miniver", was as timely a film as could be imagined in early 1942.

4.0 out of 5 stars Morale Booster July 30 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Mrs. Miniver was an important film to come out of Hollywood during WWII. Not only was it a critical and commercial success, it had a great message for the British about continuing the fight. It also give the rest of the world a sense of what it was like for the British living with the constant threat of the Germans. The movie has a lot going for it. It's directed by William Wyler, who once again does an excellent job, balancing sentiment with drama in this story of Mrs. Miniver and her family. Greer Garson gives a warm performance as the model English wife and mother, and Walter Pidgeon is solid as her husband. The supporting cast of Teresa Wright, Dame May Whitty, and Henry Travers add much to the film. There are a number of scenes that I really enjoyed, including Mrs. Miniver's confrontation with a downed German airman, the Minivers' night in their shelter during an air raid, and the final scene in the Church. Almost sixty years later, it's easy to see the emotional impact this film must have had on audiences.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Our enemy is no respecter of flower shows." Oct. 9 2008
As the story opens early in 1939, Mrs. Miniver (Greer Garson) is a happy wife and mother living a charmed life in an English village. Her husband, Clem (Walter Pigeon), is a successful architect and she has three children she adores. When war is declared, her life is deeply affected: Her eldest son is a pilot in the Air Force, Clem is gone for days on boat patrol, and her village is subjected to enemy bombs.

Released in 1942, this movie was a big hit with its patriotic message and wholesome family values. While the Miniver family is somewhat idealized, they nevertheless feel the horror of wartime. It's rousing and sentimental without being overly preachy and won six Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Garson is just perfect as the loving woman who holds her family together and Pigeon is a good match as her husband. The supporting cast is lovely, especially Henry Travers as the rose-loving station master.

The DVD extras include two patriotic short films that were made during the war. This is an inspiring, sweet, and timeless story of the effects of war on the home-front. Highly recommended.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was extremely disappointed with the seller of this dvd movie, because no thought went into the fact that I live in Canada and they sold films formatted for players made for Europe and England. Not enough care is taken by Amazon and its' sellers to make sure the product is for the right audience location. This is a great moving film about the life of families in war time England. I will have to just depend on my memory to enjoy this lovely film, (which I have seen many times on VHS) unless I move to England where I can actually watch this film I bought.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dated, Still a Classic March 31 2004
Format:VHS Tape
"Mrs. Miniver" is regarded as a classic WW2 homefront movie. In this case the setting is a comfortable prim and proper English town in the Summer of 1939. When WW2 breaks out, the "good and decent" townspeople must put aside their stuff class distinctions and pull together against the common enemy, Nazi Germany. The Battle of Britain, the retreat from Dunkirk and eponymous wartime romances/ heartbreak are aptly used as background. The female leads carry the picture. In fact Greer Garson and Teresa Wright won Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress Oscars. Another cast member, Dame May Whitty was also nominated for Best Supporting Actress and male lead, Walter Pidgeon, was nominated for Best Actor. MM also won Best Movie honors and Director William Wyler also was given a statuette. MMs timing was fortuitous! Work began just before the attack Pearl Harbor and wrapped in the Spring of 1942 just as this country needed propaganda/soap operas supporting the Big One. One can appreciate the rush to Oscars but that too has its own story: Lost in all the awards was Ms. Garson's stunning role alongside Ronald Colman in "Random Harvest". Almost lost was Ms. Wright's work as Lou Gehrig's wife in "Pride of the Yankees" for which she and Gary Cooper were nominated for Oscars. MM has two main weak points: One is that the 133 minute run time is plainly too long. Some of those flower-growing contests should have been shortened. Other scenes unfold far too leisurely. The second weak point is that unlike other propaganda flicks (like "Casablanca"), MM has not aged gracefully. It now appears dowdy and dated. There are definite strong points: The small town setting is one. The little vignettes are outstanding such as when the maid Gladys learns her boyfriend's getting drafted! Read more ›
