Huge Cast Makes This One A Winner
13 January 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

In 1943, while the War still raged, an incredible assortment of British performers living in Hollywood got together to make a morale booster of a movie to top all the others. Joining in the production was a first class collection of producers, directors & writers. Although seldom viewed now, FOREVER AND A DAY is a wonderful film, absolutely not to be missed.

The story is of 140 years in the life of a London house, right up to the Blitz, and of the two families - sometimes feuding, sometimes merging - that called it home. Its endurance through history's onslaughts becomes a symbol of the British Nation's resolve to fight anything Hitler could throw against them.

A partial listing of the cast illustrates its richness: Claude Rains, Ida Lupino, Merle Oberon, Ray Milland, Charles Laughton, Elsa Lanchester, Dame May Whitty, Dame Gladys Cooper, Dame Anna Neagle, Sir Cedric Hardwicke, Sir C. Aubrey Smith & Buster Keaton. Together, with many others, they combine to serve up cracking good entertainment.
