Britain In The Thick Of It
28 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is the first time I have seen this film after requesting a search on Youtube.com for "complete film movies of 1942".I have quite an extensive collection of 1940s films on DVD & VHS video, so many of the actors appeared like old friends to me.As the synopsis advised, it charts how a typical, in this case, (lower middle class) family coped living through the Blitz during the war, how they adapted to its privations, and eventually made the ultimate sacrifice for king & country.Edward Rigby has the genial lead role as Mr Bunting and Stanley Holloway plays the part of the narrator, giving the introduction and epilogue.

Obviously filmed at the height of WWII Government censorship and official messages to viewers had to be incorporated into the script with a "we can take it" attitude.My vote was 6/10.An adequate film but not up to the standard of Noel Coward's 1946 film "This Happy Breed", mentioned by the other reviewer.
