Storyline

Adam is a young American wrongly accused of being an accomplice to murder while on shore leave in Liverpool. He is sentenced to death by hanging but the sentence is commuted to twenty years in a convict settlement in Australia. The governor of the colony has a scheme in mind to settle Australia by allowing convicts to marry and by giving them land, and Adam is the perfect choice to prove his scheme is viable. He is partnered with Bess, a young Irish lass, and together they endure the hardships of the Australian outback. Written by Kevin Steinhauer <K.Steinhauer@BoM.GOV.AU>

Beau's best(!)...one of my favorites!
12 October 2000 | by (Ft. Lauderdale, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in 1973 in Chicago late one night on TV and was thoroughly taken with it! It's the kind of story that will last forever,-- so why is it impossible to find??? If I could get my hands on a VHS or DVD of this movie I'd watch it all the time! I'd give it to everyone I know for Xmas/Birthdays/etc.!
