Although I may be the last critic to pen it, I would like to record that I, too, thought of saying that So Well Remembered will be So Easily Forgotten, that I, too, have my moments of lightning wit in the bath. Full Review

Rating: C+ -- A British drama that's hardly remembered anymore for good reason: it's humdrum. Full Review

A story which the book reviewers warned us was disappointing and dull, as originally told by James Hilton in his So Well Remembered, has been miraculously transmuted into an affecting and fascinating tale in the film of the same title. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Lost Horizon. Goodbye, Mr. Chips. Random Harvest. To these James Hilton novels that became acclaimed and beloved films, add So Well Remembered. John Mills heads a distinguished cast in this story of a dedicated news editor in a slum-ridden English mill town and his doomed marriage to the beautiful, headstrong daughter (Martha Scott) of a corrupt mill owner. Spanning the years from the end of one world war to the end of the next, So Well Remembered captures the sweep of history and the power of reform through the emotionally charged lens of personal lives. That's author Hilton's voice you hear in the film's eloquent narration passages. Edward Dmytryk (Tender Comrade, Murder, My Sweet, The Caine Mutiny) directs.

Product Description:

SO WELL REMEMBERED was the first of a proposed series of Anglo-American co-productions underwritten by Hollywood's RKO Radio Pictures and England's J. Arthur Rank. In one of his better postwar roles, John Mills stars as George Boswell, the editor of the newspaper in the small English mining town of Bowdley. Tirelessly fighting for fairer treatment and better working conditions for the miners, Boswell is sidetracked by his covetous, ambitious wife Olivia (Martha Scott), who hopes to maneuver her husband into Parliament. Eventually, Boswell gets his priorities in order, neglecting his campaign to help local doctor Whiteside (Trevor Howard) combat a diphtheria epidemic. When he loses his own child to the disease, a tragedy caused in part by his wife's selfishness, Boswell withdraws completely from his campaign -- and from life. Years pass before Boswell can find some purpose in his existence again, this time by preventing the still-unregenerate Olivia from destroying the happiness of her son (Richard Carlson), from a second marriage, and the son's sweetheart Julie (Patricia Roc), Dr. Whiteside's daughter. John Mills' 5-year-old daughter Juliet and infant daughter Hayley appear in bit parts. Though director Edward Dmytryk received plaudits from most critics for his work on SO WELL REMEMBERED, there were those who insisted upon reading Dmytryk's perceived "pro-Red" sentiments in the screenplay -- which was actually adapted by John Paxton from a novel by James Hilton (who also narrates the picture).
