After four years in the Great War (WWI), Frank Gibbons (Robert Newton) is demobbed and returns home to his wife (Celia Johnson) and their children. They move into a small house which, although homely, becomes the setting for much high drama.
The play must have been great.

As a film with the perspective of the 1920s through to the start of World War Two it is one of the best. It is an old film but in this case that is not a fault. Give the characters time they develop wonderfully and the main players are the best of English actors of the time. A brilliant Sunday afternoon film, sit back and enjoy.
