Ladies & Gentlemen. Welcome to The Envelope Podcast. Here on The Envelope, we discuss & review every Best Picture Winner in the Academy Awards History.
On this episode, we discuss the fifteenth Best Picture Winner: “MRS. MINIVER.”
Told in a series of dramatic vignettes, “Mrs. Miniver” follows a middle-class English family learning to cope with war. The family, headed by the lovely & gracious matriarch Mrs. Miniver, endures the departure of the father for the beaches at Dunkirk, the discovery of a wounded Nazi pilot, the death of the daughter-in-law in an air raid, and the son joining the Royal Air Force. Directed by William Wyler, the film stars Greer Garson as Mrs. Miniver, Walter Pidgeon as Clem Miniver, Teresa Wright as Carol Beldon, Dame May Whitty as Lady Beldon and Henry Travers as James Ballard (ALL of whom were nominated for Oscars in their respective categories).
