This Happy Breed 1944 (115minutes) Robert Newton, Celia Johnson
From the play by Noel Coward
In 1919, Frank Gibbons (Robert Newton) returns home from army duty and moves into a small middle-class house, bringing with him wife Ethel (Celia Johnson), carping mother-in-law Mrs. Flint (Amy Veness), sister-in-law Sylvia (Alison Leggatt) and three children. Years pass, with the daily routine of family infighting and reconciliation occasionally broken by a strike or a festival. By the time the children have grown into adults, another war is looming.
