Apart from starring Reginald Owen, there's not a lot to distinguish this one.
22 May 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"The Dream" is set during the early days of WWII and concerns a group of men from the Home Guard and their work patrolling the countryside for evil Nazis. One of them, Herbert (Reginald Owen) has a strange occurrance. He falls asleep on duty and sees his home and wife being bombed by the Germans...and this snaps him awake...awake in time to deal with a few Nazis with his good 'old pitchfork. So what happened to the wife? Is she alive? And, did she also have some sort of strange dream?

The acting was fine but the story itself seemed too unremarkable for this series about psychic phenomena. Overall, watchable but not much more. The actors (particularly Owen) did fine...the story itself just didn't do much for me one way or the other.
