Trivia

In a crucial scene in a restaurant, a pianist is playing the song "Ol' Man River", from the Broadway musical "Show Boat". As "The Miniver Story" went into release, MGM, which filmed it, was preparing to begin filming their Technicolor remake of "Show Boat", which would be released in the summer of the following year (1951).

Very nicely done!
23 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having finally seen this movie, and being a major fan of "Mrs. Miniver", I can definitely say that it was NOT a "weak script" or one to be skipped, as other people have stated.

It's just a nice, warm, well-done movie showing the time period was like after WWII, that's all. People DID have conflicts, couples when the soldier returned, etc.

Some have commented, negatively, on the absence of Vin, or Vincent, the oldest Miniver child from the previous movie. Richard Ney, who played him, and Greer Garson were married after the first one, and the marriage was a stormy one, and ended two years later. In the first movie, I thought it was the Vin character who was weak, and a bit of a whiner. In the movie story, he might have been captured by enemy forces and nobody've had heard from him again. It did happen.
