Mrs. Miniver (1942) Poster


May Whitty: Lady Beldon



  • Kay Miniver : Did you know that the 12th Lord Beldon was hanged?

    Lady Beldon : He was beheaded! Such things happen in the best families. In fact, usually in the best families.

  • Lady Beldon : I'm sorry to disturb the harmony of this occasion, but our enemies are no respecters of flower shows.

  • Vicar : [to Lady Beldon who has just entered the railway compartment he is already sharing with Mrs. Miniver]  Good evening, Lady Beldon.

    Lady Beldon : Good evening, vicar. Oh, oh, shopping's absolutely impossible nowadays! You can't get near the counter and when you do, they haven't got it and you pay twice as much for it.

    Vicar : [laughs]  What a wonderful description!

    Lady Beldon : [to her servant]  Sit down, Simmons, and don't snip!

    [to the vicar] 

    Lady Beldon : My dear man, I spent the whole afternoon being pushed around by middle-class females buying things they can't possibly afford.

    Kay Miniver : Oh dear, that means me.

    Lady Beldon : Oh no, much worse!
