Mrs Miniver was taken from a character created by my great heroine, Joyce Anstruther. The true-Brit-grit you see in the film bears little relation to the original, whom William Wyler set a good deal lower on the social ladder than Joyce's creation, whose upper-middle-class set-pieces were intentionally hilarious.
