A later film had a perhaps better title: No Sex Please, We’re British! David Lean would go on in life to make some of the grandest epics in film history. “Brief Encounter” is a micro-masterpiece. Wonderful acting (Celia Johnson & Trevor Howard) and Noel Coward’s marvelous dialogue (and interior monlogue) is music. On more than one occasion I would turn to Ann and say, “This is the most British movie ever made!” Absolutely fantastic.
