The Happy Land

The Happy Land

Movie: The Happy Land
Director: Irving Pichel
Produced by: 20th Century Fox
Released By: 20th
MPAA Rating:

An Iowa drugstore owner becomes embittered when his son is killed in World War II. The druggist believes that the boy’s life was cut short before he had an opportunity to truly appreciate his existence. The grieving father is shown the error of his assumption by the ghost of his grandfather, who through flashbacks details the good things about the son’s short term on Earth, and the wonderful life that the druggist himself has enjoyed. Frances Dee plays Don Ameche’s wife, while Ann Rutherford portrays his son’s girl. Happy Land was suitable wartime propaganda, though it doesn’t play quite as movingly today.
