“Meet Alberto Cavalcanti's Went the Day Well?, Mrs. Miniver's homicidal twin sister, a sweet old lady from Ealing Studios who puts strychnine in your tea and rusty nails in your crumpets.”—Slant

Told in flashback, the thrilling Went the Day Well? reflects the very real fear throughout the UK during WWII of being invaded by Germany. The villagers in the small fictitious English town of Bramley End find the war at their doorsteps after a group of German soldiers posing as English troops take them hostage. (92 mins., 35mm)
