Went The Day Well? | Out Now

Based on the story by Graham Greene, Went The Day Well? is a classic piece
of propagandist entertainment, a warning to British citizens to remain ever alert for
the arrival of the enemy. A rare foray into darker material by Ealing Studios, Alberto
Cavalcanti’s (Nicholas Nickleby, Dead Of Night) film tells the story of a quiet English village
which has been infiltrated by German soldiers masquerading as British troops, leaving the
plucky villagers to uncover the plot and fight back.
