Medal for the General is a British comedy released in 1944. It centers around World War I veteran Victor Church (Godfrey Tearle). Church is disheartened when he finds out he is too old to take part in World War II. He hides out on his country estate and is making plans to kill himself, when his life is turned upside down. His home is taken over by six Cockney children from London who are evacuating and need a place to take refuge. A young Petula Clark takes a starring role as Irma, one of the children, who was discovered by director Maurice Elvey while she was singing at a charity concert. The screenplay was written by Elizabeth Baron, and the film is based on a book of the same title by author James Ronald. Medal for the General was produced by Louis H. Jackson and was received to largely positive critical reviews.
