Went the Day Well? is one of the most unusual Ealing Studios pictures, a distinctly unsentimental war film made in the darkest days of WWII. Houston studies why the film avoids the cosy Ealing trademark. This Film Classics 20th anniversary edition comes with a new foreword by Geoff Brown, and a stunning new jacket design by Mark Swan.
