"Great movie of a life with amazing achivements"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is a lovely movie that shows if you have a desire to do things there is a way to achieve, with great results

"Touching story of love and faith"
5 stars"

Many years ago I met the real Gladys Aylward and the story of how she walked hundreds of Chinese children, of all ages, over the mountains to escape the brutal, invading Japanese army was far scarier than this movie.

Nevertheless, the film captures some of the tension of the times, and the incredible courage of this English woman who went out to China with nothing behind her except her incredible faith in God. The song, ‘This old man, he played one’ came from this film.

A piece of history made into a (now classic) movie and well worth watching, especially when you know it's all true.


All her life Englishwoman Gladys Aylward knew that China was the place where she belonged. Not qualified to be sent there as a missionary, Gladys works as a domestic to earn the money to send herself to a poor, remote village. There she eventually lives a full and happy life: running the inn, acting as "foot inspector", advising the local Mandarin and even winning the heart of mixed race Captain Lin Nan. But Gladys discovers her real destiny when the country is invaded by Japan and the Chinese children need her to save their lives. Based on a true story.
