How Anglo-American Relations Became “Special”
Mrs. Miniver (1942) is Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's portrait of the war's disruptive effects on English family's life. Its political context earned it wide acclaim and the film resonated strongly among American viewers because of its compelling narrative. This chapter discusses how films romanticized the Anglo-American alliance to foster an impression of an international harmony. It discusses wartime cinematic discourse highlighting the idea that Americans and Britons shared a “special relationship”, which was a direct result of their wartime experiences.
