Remember the Day is a 1941 film released by 20th Century Fox, directed by Henry King, and starring Claudette Colbert and John Payne.


Elderly schoolteacher Nora Trinell reflects on her life and teaching career while waiting to see Dewey Roberts, formerly her student and currently a Presidential nominee. This film is reminiscent of Cheers for Miss Bishop (1941) and Good Morning, Miss Dove (1955).



Reviewing the 2015 20th Century-Fox Cinema Archives release of Remember the Day, DVDTalk's Paul Mavis wrote, "Absolutely lovely; surprisingly accomplished in its delicate evocation of its sentimental story of an understanding, caring teacher navigating two loves: one innocent and charming, and the other passionate (and as expected, ultimately tragic). One of Colbert's best roles, in one of her more (unfortunately) obscure outings."[1]
