In Which We Serve David Lean and NoŽl Coward 1942 In the midst of World War II, the renowned playwright NoŽl Coward engaged a young film editor named David Lean to help him realize his vision for an action drama about a group of Royal Navy sailors (roles that would be filled by Coward himself, Bernard Miles, and John Mills, among others) fighting This Happy Breed David Lean 1944 David Lean brings to vivid emotional life NoŽl Cowardís epic chronicle of a working-class family in the London suburbs over the course of two decades.
