The Day Will Dawn Reviews:

I found the greatest scenes in this film to be the ones in which Deborah Kerr was acting. And I'm not even a fanatic of hers (or I wasn't, before this!) so that gotta tell something about her...it was only about her 5th or 6th role, she was very young, yet she was excellent for the role. The rest of the film traveled along fairly slowly, but luckily had a several exciting fight time scenes, and an outstanding, terrifying, climax. Nice for a rainy day, and don't give up on it. 7/10.


Horse race tipster and journalist Metcalfe is picked for the job of foreign correspondent in Norway when Hitler invades Poland. On the method to Norway his boat is attacked by a German U-Boat, however when he says the navy about it they disbelief him and, to create matters worse, he is removed from his job. When German forces invade Norway, Metcalfe returns determined to uncover what is going on and stop the Germans in their tracks.1940's British cinema is understandably packed with wartime propaganda pieces. This movie doesn't stand out from the package but it is still worth a watch. The primary plot is interesting and provides tense drama towards the end, even if it gets all confused at times in the middle and some of it didn't quite hang together for me. The action is a tiny stilted at times and the movie never misses a possibility to present how very selfish and foolish the German officers are. This is a tiny massive handed but what did you expect from a propaganda film? However it is badly done at times and seems massive handed.The cast are mainly good. Williams is typical of the stiff upper lip English heroes of this kind of film. Again it seems a tiny stiff but it's the usual sort of English gentleman that we wanted to see at the time – especially when compared to the slimly cowardly Germans shown here. The help cast are OK despite the very, very iffy Norwegian accents, but this doesn't matter too much.Overall this movie is typical British wartime propaganda. The Brits save the day, the Germans are cowardly, sacrifice is made but the greater nice is served. As a Brit this is a solid bit of entertainment for a rainy Saturday afternoon, but probably not much more capable than that.


This film is markedly more propagandist in tone than most films made in the UK about the fight while it was still in progress.It more closely resembles the overtly patriotic US pictures from the same era such as Guadalcanal Diary or Back To Bataan .It does not neglect to pay a merited tribute to the Norwegian folks for their resistance either.Hugh Williams plays Colin Metcalfe ,a London journalist sent by his paper to Norway , later to be conquered by the Nazis .He falls in love with Kari Alstead (Deborah Kerr)the daughter of a local fisherman(Finlay Currie).He returns to London after a short posting to Norway where he witnesses a Nazi submarine in operation .He is sent back to the country by Naval Intelligence to support the Royal Navy pinpoint the exact zone of the U-Boat base from which crippling attacks are being launched on allied vessels .In the time he was away Kari has been forced to enter into an engagement with the Quisling police chief Gunther(Griffith Moore)in order to protect her father from arrest by the local Nazi chief (Francis L Sullivan).He is able to engineer a raid which is in turn followed by brutal Nazi repression The film gives a nice picture of life under the jackboot and is well acted -although for all her talent Deborah Kerr is not ideal casting as a Norwegian fisherwoman .Ralph Richardson impresses as a journalist and Roland Culver is nice as Naval Intelligence boy Rousing and patriotic, the film ends with a typically robust Churchillian sentiment that still stirs the blood and it is nice to see British cinema indulging in patriotism rather than restraint for once
