The screenplay was based on a book titled The Small Woman by Alan Burgess. The film was made in 1958 by Mark Robson and stars Ingrid Bergman (Intermezzo; Casablanca; Gaslight). Gladys Aylward (Ingrid Bergman) is an Englishwoman born and raised in Liverpool. She has always dreamed of working as a Christian missionary in China, but when she applies for a position with the China Missionary Society in London, they reject her on the grounds that she is not well qualified. With her heart still set on China, Gladys takes a position as a maid and saves enough money to travel to China by train. Gladys eventually makes it to China where she first works with a woman named Jeannie Lawson (Athene Seyler) and a cook named Yang (Peter Chong) at an inn - The Inn of the Sixth Happiness. But Gladys's responsibilities soon shift from working at the inn to a role in chinese foot binding with a local mandarin. Gladys's adventure pinnacles when she helps rescue hundreds of children deserted in the mountains. The Inn of the Sixth Happiness is an inspirational story of a woman determined to help those less fortunate. Two thumbs up!moreless
