A Day to Remember
17 July 2016 | by cmcastlSee all my reviews

This film doesn't seem to be available on Youtube so I shall have to wait to refresh my memory of it until it appears one fine night or day out of peak hours on goodness knows what channel. But what I can remember of it I remember with fondness. I consider it a minor gem of early post-war British cinema.

The War, and there is still only one war which we call the War, had not been long over after the time the film was set and produced and it does, from what I remember, reproduce that attitude of Little England, and Little Englanders, and a sense of England in the best sense of the phrase which has now disappeared. The two stories which are strong is Bill Owen so smarting from an inferiority complex he joins the Foreign Legion, and that would have made a good sequel in itself, and the heart warming story of Bill Sinden as the young veteran who finally finds himself and his heart through returning to France and encountering a lovely French girl - a dream for many Englishmen then and now! I believe the story ends with the organiser of the trip complaining that next year the annual Pub Trip will stay safely on the English side of the Channel! Vive La France and Vive L'Angleterre!
