  • A woman POW looks for her lost daughter only to find that she needs a greater inner strength when she finds her daughter than she needed as a prisoner-of-war.

    This episode kept me glued to my seat from the beginning. Loretta Young, (still beautiful in very little makeup), as the widow of a Saigon reporter, has been kept in a prison-of-war camp for 28 months and now looks for her lost daughter. The story goes through her many twists and turns and you ache for her at each roadblock. When she finally finds her little girl, you feel the motherly agony as she struggles with how to handle what is best for her daughter. The ending is implied but is left up to you, the viewer. This was the topper for me. I also did not know that women POW stories like this existed so I also learned something from this episode.moreless
