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>

Wonderful Movie; AWAL
8 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Read the other reviews. They are right on.

I have seen this movie twice on TV. It was a long time ago, too long ago. I would love to see it again and again. I really don't understand why it is still impossible to find. Surely there is a copy of it somewhere that could be legally distributed. It is too good a movie to disappear.

I found reference to someone who has a copy (Adam's Woman – An Australian Viewpoint) I wonder if it is possible to create a consortium to resurrect this gem. I am certainly aware there are hundreds/thousands of movies that need rescue. IMNSHO, this should be on someone's list.
