Three Came Home, a wartime film that was released in 1950 by Twentieth Century Fox, is the story of an American-born woman, her British husband, and their young son. The story, which begins in the early 1940's in North Borneo, tells the tale of how members of one family would have their lives changed forever when the Japanese invasion resulted in their captivity. After the invasion, Harry Keith (Patric Knowles), Agnes Keith (Claudette Colbert), and their child would be taken to two different prison camps; one for men, and the other for women and children. While the internment camps are filled with abuse and suffering, Lieutenant-Colonel Suga (Sessue Hayakawa), a camp commander, finds himself respectful to Agnes Keith and kind to the children, despite his torn feelings after the death of his family in Hiroshima. After viewing the movie, a reviewer from the New York Times wrote, "It will shock you, disturb you, tear your heart out, but it will fill you fully with a great respect for a heroic soul."moreless
