The article presents information on various British films. England made "Breaking Through the Sound Barrier," as good scientific thriller as modern filmic times have produced. Is it a coincidence that it has to do with the dynamics of sound? Perhaps not. The fusion of effective diction with an optimistic version of reality seems the peculiar documentary-fictitious realm in which Great Britain excels all other nations. "Cavalcade In Which We Serve," and "This Happy Breed," were epicsized films from England, stating, with an obvious desire not to overstate, the historic patriotism of a people.
