  • Millions Like Us

    1943. Great Britain. Written and directed by Frank Launder, Sidney Gilliat. With Patricia Roc, Gordon Jackson. The first directorial effort by Launder and Gilliat, the celebrated screenwriting team responsible for Alfred Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes and Carol Reed's Night Train to Munich. Begun as a wartime documentary, Millions Like Us evolved into a humorous and poignant story of life on the home front, and a progressive look at British class differences and women in the workforce. Preserved by the National Film and Sound Archive (Canberra, Australia) from the original camera negative. 101 min.
