Movie Info

Alan Burgess' novel The Small Woman was the source for the British/American co-production Inn of the Sixth Happiness. Set in the China of the 1930s, the film stars Ingrid Bergman as real-life missionary Gladys Aylward. Against the advice of practically everyone, Gladys heads into the war-ravaged interior to spread the Christian gospel. She finds a powerful ally in the form of an elderly Mandarin (Robert Donat) who, despite his early efforts to rid himself of the troublesome Gladys, eventually

The Inn of the Sixth Happiness is an inspiring story and a well made movie. It has the historical epic feel you'd expect from a film with such scope.

If you're put off by the missionary impulse, then this film probably isn't for you-even though Bergman brings an honest earnestness to the film that's hard to resist.

Mark Robson's loose adaptation of a British missionary's tale is well intentioned and well acted by Ingrod Bergman, but suffers from the casting of the Asian roles with actors like Robert Donat or Curt Jurgens.

Audience Reviews for The Inn of the Sixth Happiness

Finely wrought drama of a truly brave selfless woman. Not a lot of Hollywood artifice just a simple story of someone who felt a calling and pursued it with single minded determination to find it made her life one of meaning and importance. Ingrid Bergman is perfectly cast here and give a beautiful performance supported by a fine Curt Jurgens and especially the touching and dignified Robert Donat in his last film. A winner.

Ingrid Bergman is both beautiful and compelling in this story of an English missionary in China. Her presence elevates what would otherwise be an ethnocentric and somewhat dated film.

Extraordinary and courage true story of an English missionary, Glady Aylward, in China who leaded 100 orphaned Chinese children to safety across enemy-hold terrian through WWII.

It isn't a white man in China but rather a white woman saving the day. For that point alone, I reduce it by a star but you can't stay too upset with this film. It has good performances and an interesting story line.
