It Happened Here (1966) Trailer
Trailer for the 1966 retelling of history, It Happened Here.
In It Happened Here, Brownlow and Mollo's brilliant re-write of history, Germany has won World War II and Nazi troops occupy England. Pauline Murray, an apolitical Irish nurse, is transferred to London, where she slowly realizes the horrifying reality behind the occupation. The film is a terrifying intimation of what might have happened if the Allied effort had failed. Brownlow was only 18 and his co-director Mollo was 16, when they started this monumental documentary style drama in 1956.
