The play must have been great. - This Happy Breed review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

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.
