Must have been "Mrs. Miniver". I love that movie - Greer Garson is enchanting in it.

My favorite knitting scene in a movie is in Mel Brooks' "The History of the World, pt. 1" where Cloris Leachman is a peasant in the time of the French Revolution. She's soooooo poor, that she's knitting with no yarn - just needles! It cracks me up. Oh, and of course she keeps beating her breast while talking - not a good idea when one has knitting needles in their hands!
