Lushly filmed in black and white, William Wyler's moving Mrs. Miniver (1942) captured the hearts of audiences around the world. It was nominated for twelve Oscars and won six, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress for its star Greer Garson, and Best Supporting Actress for ingenue Teresa Wright. Sir Winston Churchill declared that the World War II drama, set in England and following the lives of a middle-class British family, had done more for the war effort than a flotilla of destroyers.
