- Why, of course. But I don't see--

I want to call it the 'Mrs. Miniver.'

If you'll pardon me, ma'am...

...I've watched you go in and out of town

for years now...

...and you've always had time

to stop and have a word with me...

...and I've always waited

for you to come home...

...and you remind me of the flower.

And I figured it'd be a very good name

for my rose.

It's a lovely compliment, Mr. Ballard.

I'd be very happy indeed

to have you name your rose after me.


I really must go now. I'm terribly

late already. Goodbye, Mr. Ballard...

...and thank you. Thank you very much.

- No, no, no, thank you.

I think it's lovely

having flowers named after you.


- Bye.

Thank you.

That's my wife.

Good as new?

- Well, almost, sir.

It's a nice car, but afraid

it's a little more than I can afford.

Oh, I'm sorry, sir.

We have some nice cars

in a cheaper bracket.

But I like this one.

Well, I'm going to take it.

Perhaps you'd better think it over.

- No, I'm going to take it.

Will you bring it tonight?

- Very good, sir.

And don't let my wife know

how much it cost.

Hello, Judy.

- Daddy.

Good evening.

Mr. Miniver, you're just in time

to hear Judy play her piece.

But I'm afraid--

- lt'd encourage her so much.

Encourage both of us, in fact.

- I'm a little late. Next time.

See you later, Judy.

- Bye, Daddy.

What's the hurry, Toby?

- I can't stop, Daddy.

Napoleon wants to throw up.

- Oh, does he?

I wouldn't dare tell you the price, though.

I feel terribly guilty about it.

I was already on my way home

and something seemed to come over me...

...a sort of trance. I got off the bus--

- Hello, darling.

Oh, Clem.

- How are you?

That's Clem, dear.

As I was saying, I got off the bus...

...and then I suddenly remembered that Vin

Arthur Wimperis

Arthur Harold Wimperis (3 December 1874 – 14 October 1953) was an English playwright, lyricist and screenwriter, who contributed lyrics and libretti to popular Edwardian musical comedies written for the stage. But with the advent of talking films, he switched to screenwriting, finding even greater success in this medium. Early in his career, Wimperis was an illustrator. For 25 years beginning in 1906, he became a lyricist and librettist for musical comedies, including the hit The Arcadians in 1909 and many others. After serving in the First World War, he resumed his career, writing for shows like Princess Charming (1926). Beginning in 1930, he moved into writing screenplays for British films, and, by 1940, for Hollywood films, contributing to dozens of screenplays. He won an Academy Award for his contribution to the screenplay of Mrs. Miniver (1942) and was nominated for another Oscar for his contribution to the screenplay of Random Harvest (1942). He continued writing screenplays until his death more…
