It's more a drama/thriller than a war movie.

This movie spans a very long period of time and thus is difficult to assign to a single decade. The 1930s to 1950s are the main periods in this movie, so the 40s lie in between. :-)

Very nice (fictional) story about young princess Elizabeth and her sister Margaret who spent a night out more or less incognito during VE day.

This movie has a very large time span. I could put it as well in many other of my historical movie lists. The 1940s are one of the most important periods here. It's the middle part of the movie lasting appr. 50 minutes.

My favourite movies and TV-Series set in the 1940s that were not made in that time.

(WW2 movies are not included, they are on seperate lists.)
