Went the Day Well? is a 1942 British war film adapted from a story by Graham Greene titled "The Lieutenant Died Last," and directed by Alberto Cavalcanti. It was produced by Michael Balcon of Ealing Studios and served as unofficial propaganda for the war effort. A small English village is so cut off that the arrival of a car is an event. When lorryloads of Royal Engineers led by Major Ortler turn up, the villagers have no reason to suspect that they are really disguised German paratroopers who proceed to hold the village captive.
