This Land Is Mine is a 1943 American war drama film directed by Jean Renoir and starring Charles Laughton, Maureen O'Hara and George Sanders. The film is set in an unspecified Nazi-occupied European country. Laughton plays Albert Lory, a cowardly school teacher in a small village "somewhere in Europe" (according to the film's opening title card) who is drawn into the actions of the Resistance through his love of his country and fellow schoolteacher Louise Martin, portrayed by O'Hara.
The film is one of the more acclaimed of the propaganda-tinged war films of the era. It won the 1944 Academy Award for Best Sound, Recording (Stephen Dunn). Having opened simultaneously in 72 theaters, the film set a record for gross receipts on an opening day upon its 7 May 1943 release.
