Journey for Margaret (MOD)

An acclaimed wartime drama that is both tender and urgent. A sensitive film that never falls prey to sentiment thanks to the skill of director Maj. W.S. Van Dyke II and the power of a fact-based story that speaks of the universal need for family.

      Comments about Journey for Margaret (MOD):

      It does an especially credible job of filming the London Blitz of 1940, but has a message that, "The real damage is to England's families and children--not the buildings portrayed by rubble."

      A Fine Print of a Top MGM Film

        A wonderful print of this topical war-time film from MGM. Margaret O'Brien is pretty sensational in this movie, and are many of the other characters, including Robert Young. The sentimentality goes over the top a couple of times, but you always watch older films in context and I am sure it was tremendously effective when it was first released. The production values are just what you would expect from MGM during the 40s and this print is crisp and bright. Really enjoyed this one!

              Comments about Journey for Margaret (MOD):

              "Journey for Margaret" is a story of children orphaned by the blitz of London and their tramatic reaction to it. The film may be considered sentimental, but the fact that it was made in 1942 when World war II still had years to go, and may include actual newsreel footage of the bombing of London, gives it extra credibility. Margaret O'Brian, at 5 years old, acts rings around her co-star, Robert young, whose reactions can be overdone and stereotypic.
