Synopsis in German
Die Geschichte eines alten Herrschaftshauses in London zwischen 1804 und dem Zweiten Weltkrieg, erzählt in kurzen Episoden von seiner letzten Bewohnerin im Luftschutzkeller, die einen angereisten Amerikaner davon abhalten will, das Haus zu verkaufen. Vor seinen inneren Augen leben Freud und Leid im Leben zweier Familien über mehrere Generationen auf. (Film im Fernsehen)

Remarks and general Information in German: Melodramatischer Film, entstanden als Dokument der amerikanisch-englischen Verbundenheit während des Zweiten Weltkrieges, was sich bereits in der Zusammenarbeit von sieben Regisseuren und 80 prominenten Stars aus Hollywood und England dokumentiert. Ein vor allem filmhistorisch bedeutender Film, der in diversen Beiträgen zwischen übertriebener Rührseligkeit und ehrlicher stiller Ergriffenheit pendelt, bei allen inszenatorischen Uneinheitlichkeiten aber stets einen menschlich warmen Grundton bewahrt. (Film im Fernsehen)
