1/5/23 A great film to see with the entire family!
I was amazed to learn in college that although there have been many Christian movies made, not all of them were cheesy (But I love the cheezey ones the most) or unpopular. I enjoyed this one, owned it on DVD when I was in college, and found today that is free to watch on youtube. Thankful sometimes for the internet. Enjoy this free movie! Here is the summary of the film’s story, copied from the excerpt given below the viewing (summary I found on youtube). **The scenery is also breathtaking – before CGI took over the movie industry by storm.
“The Inn of the Sixth Happiness is a 1958 20th Century Fox film based on the true story of Gladys Aylward, a tenacious British woman, who became a missionary in China during the Second Sino-Japanese War. Directed by Mark Robson, who received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Director, the film stars Ingrid Bergman as Aylward and Curt Jürgens as her love interest, Captain Lin Nan, a Chinese Army officer with a Dutch father. Robert Donat, who played the mandarin of the town in which Aylward lived, died before the film was released. The musical score was composed and conducted by Malcolm Arnold. The cinematography was by Freddie Young. The film was shot in Snowdonia, North Wales. Most of the children in the film were ethnic Chinese children from Liverpool, home to the oldest Chinese community in Europe.”
