IN WHICH WE SERVE
Thursday, May 19
(1942, Noël Coward & David Lean) As the survivors of H.M.S. Torrin cling to a lifeboat, flashbacks unroll: Captain Noël Coward delivers staccato compliments to wife Celia Johnson at cocktail time; CPO Bernard Miles good-humoredly contends with Mother-in-Law; Seaman John Mills romances Kay Walsh (then Mrs. Lean). Coward recruited ace editor Lean to co-direct. Best Film, New York Film Critics Circle. 35mm. Approx. 115 mins.
