Alberto Cavalcanti's Went The Day Well (1942) never had much of a theatrical run in America, appearing late in the war (under the title 48 Hours), so this DVD release from Anchor Bay Entertainment, part of the company's British War Collection, marks its first wide availability in the United States. The movie has never looked so good, at least on this side of the Atlantic -- there is some digital artifacting in the shots of grasses rippling in the spring breeze, but otherwise this is as crisp, bright, clean, and sharp an image as one could wish for in a film of this vintage, which previously had only been available on unauthorized VHS tapes. The movie has a few flaws, such as missing frames at a couple of moments (most visibly at a little over 43 and a half minutes in) but otherwise comes to us in very nice shape. The audio is mastered cleanly if a little on the low volume side, but is still easier to take than any of the various unauthorized editions previously available -- the British accents can be thick on occasion, but they're understandable here, and William Walton's music (which is, at times, understandably, similar to his work on First Of The Few from the same period). The 16 chapters are more than adequate to the task of breaking down the movie dramatically, and the annotation is very thorough and informative, though the author neglects to mention the movie's eerie parallels with a much later (and better known) thriller, The Eagle Has Landed. The disc opens automatically on a simple menu offering "play" and chapter-select options, and there are no special features.
