Editorial Reviews

Lost Horizon. Goodbye, Mr. Chips. Random Harvest. To these James Hilton novels that became acclaimed and beloved films, add So Well Remembered. John Mills heads a distinguished cast in this story of a dedicated news editor in a slum-ridden English mill town and his doomed marriage to the beautiful, headstrong daughter (Martha Scott) of a corrupt mill owner. Spanning the years from the end of one world war to the end of the next, So Well Remembered captures the sweep of history and the power of reform through the emotionally charged lens of personal lives. That's author Hilton's voice you hear in the film's eloquent narration passages. Edward Dmytryk (Tender Comrade, Murder, My Sweet, The Caine Mutiny) directs.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I first saw this movie on the "late, late show" many years ago, remembering very little except that it was set in England between the World Wars and starred John Mills, but not remembering the title. Thanks to sites like [...], wikidpedia, and amazon.com I was able to find "So Well Remembered" which I was about 90% sure matched what I remembered. So I got the DVD and was happy to see that I had ordered the right movie.

The movie is slightly melodramatic (but not annoyingly so) telling the story of a reformer determined to improve conditions in his northern English town and his marriage to the daughter of the town pariah. Mills gives a fine performance in the lead role, but the acting is very good throughout. The emotional aspects are more hinted at than clearly detailed (English subtlety, perhaps). But the movie moves along well, despite a rather sharp jump, skipping the 1930s entirely. It begins and ends with the same scene, a rather puzzling scene the first time, but everything making sense the second.

The original novel's author, James Hilton, provides the narration--which is a very nice touch. All in all, the movie does a very good job of putting the viewer in that time and place, and is well worth viewing.

note: Being a Warner Archives movie, the DVD is very bare-bones, lacking any special features or even having individual scenes that can be jumped to (pressing fast forward simply moves the DVD along to the next 10 minute interval).

Format: DVD
Somewhat dated but convincing and thought provoking. Set between the end of World War One to the end of the Second. Somewhat somber well acted and still relevant.
