The Briggs Family is a 1940 British drama film directed by Herbert Mason and starring Edward Chapman, Felix Aylmer, Jane Baxter, Oliver Wakefield and Austin Trevor.[1] During the Second World War, a special constable and former solicitor is called upon to defend his son who is accused of the theft of a car.[2]



Due to the criticism of the characters not being true to life plans to make further sequels and a series of 'Briggs' films were dropped.[3]
