Synopsis:
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.

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!
