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).

Fair follow up to a wonderful original
4 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Although this is not the best of sequels it is still watchable. The main problem is that the actors playing Toby and Judy are so unlike the ones in the previous film, also the character of Vin has been completely left out altogether. I have heard it stated that the character played by Theresa Wright is somehow brought back to life. This is totally incorrect. In the original film she played Carol who became the Minivers' daughter in law. That character does not appear in this film. Whilst not as good as the first Miniver film it still has its merits, mainly the performances of Greer Garson and Walter Pigeon who still convince as Kay and Clem Miniver. In my opinion it's worth a watch as long as you don't expect too much. The ending though is very effective.
