The Miniver Story

One can't blame Hollywood for trying to cash in on the success of MRS. MINIVER with this sequel released eight years later. It's an odd piece of work examining the life of Garson's character after World War II and ventures into the realm of film noire at times. Nice touch having Walter Pidgeon present the tale in past tense. Peter Finch has some fine moments and this would mark the film debut of James Fox. Nowhere close to the original but fine it you double them up for an afternoon viewing.
