Great Day (1945) (U)

Director Lance Comfort. 1945 Drama


In the English village of Denley, the Women's Institute (a wartime program channeling village products to the troops) is electrified to hear that they'll be visited by Eleanor Roosevelt. As the women struggle to get ready while bursting with the great secret, we glimpse their home lives in subplots, notably the problematic love life of young Margaret Ellis and the travails of her proud but impoverished father. How will their lives change before the Great Day?

Starring Eric Portman, Flora Robson, Sheila Sim


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

This is a really great film- excellent strong portrayal of the actual roles of women in WW2- propping up the country and men who were broken after WW1- and Women working together.
