Storyline

"A Medal for the General" is the story of an-over-the-hill WWI general (Godfrey Tearle) who is downcast when he is told he is too old for WWII and keeps himself isolated on his spacious estate. Six children from the slum area are evacuated and billeted in his home and their numerous problems give him a new interest in life. He is awarded a medal for his good work. Jeanne de Casalis is his devoted friend and Moreland Graham plays his faithful valet. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Why Didn't He Join the home guard?
29 November 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

The General had a distinguished First Worl War.He won the VC and DSO.However he appears to have made a bit of a muck of one campaign,and as a result the war office wont reinstate him at the beginning of World War2.He cant get accepted by Civil Defence.So he goes home cuts off the radio and stops the newspapers and effectively cuts himself off from the war and everyone else.His friends decide that the best way to deal with the situation is to get 6 children from different backgrounds billeted on him.Of course with the help of his butler and cook he gets them all sorted out.At the end of the film he rescues an American crew from a burning aircraft and is awarded the GM.So in a sense he can now look everyone in the eye.I have never seen this film before.It was dated almost as soon as it was shown and had all but disappeared.Pleasant but not memorable.
