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 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.
Careless talk costs lives.
- Went the Day Well? review by Steve Mason
Exciting propaganda of German platoon which takes over a small English village as a base for invasion. Villagers fight back! Incredibly effective and inspiring, for what is really a public information film!
