A slow-moving but historic attempt to bolster the British War Relief effort in 1943, Forever and a Day is a drama about the inhabitants of a magnificent English home, beginning in the early 19th century. The story isn't much, but there's a charming spirituality about the house and what happens to those who nurture it and abuse it. It's a metaphor, of course, for England itself. Most of all, the celebrity lineup is a real treat: There are 80 stars, including Brian Aherne, Robert Cummings, Ida Lupino, Charles Laughton, Herbert Marshall, Ray Milland, Merle Oberon, Claude Rains, Victor McLaglen, Buster Keaton, C. Aubrey Smith, Elsa Lanchester, and Edmund Gwenn. Talent was stacked up behind the camera as well: René Clair, Edmund Goulding, and Cedric Hardwicke are among the directors. --Bill Desowitz
