Remember the Day is a warmly human drama depicting the basic American way of life – skillfully assembled to generate exacting audience attention in one of the best examples of well-rounded filmplay fabrication. With Claudette Colbert niftily handling her assignment and assisted by exceptionally capable support, direction and script, picture is an ‘A’ attraction.

Story [from a play by Philo Higley and Philip Dunning] is slightly reminiscent of Goodbye, Mr Chips. In Remember the Day it’s a femme schoolteacher who holds the spotlight; but there’s still the neat admixture of happiness and semi-tragedy in her involvement in a brief romance that upsets the puppy-love adoration of a teenage pupil she has become interested in to generate his interests into proper hobbies and channels.
