This Land Is Mine (17-Mar-1943)

Director: Jean Renoir

Writer: Dudley Nichols

Music by: Lothar Perl

Producers: Jean Renoir; Dudley Nichols

Keywords: Drama, WWII, Nazis

A meek schoolteacher grows a backbone after his French town is occupied by the Nazi war machine. Good screenplay with superior performances, especially from star Charles Laughton, whose impassioned courtroom speech ranks among the highlights. Produced as a propaganda film, it is not at all typical work for Renoir. Won an Oscar for Best Sound Recording.
