Legendary director John Ford's final film involving seven dedicated missionary women in China circa 1935 trying to protect themselves from the advances of a Mongolian barbaric warlord and his cut-throat gang of warriors.
Try, try, try to get your hands on this amazing tape of Lilian Gish in Horton Foote's beautiful and simple teleplay. It's a gem of golden-age live television, of American theatre (legendary Gish performed the role on stage as well) and of American Southern Literature. The story is sweet but not saccharine and its moving without being melodramatic. Someone is bound to comment that its "too slow" but I'll tell you now that the piece is just slow enough! Mrs. Carrie Watts desire to go back to Bountiful one more time before she dies is a poignent comment on the changing landscape of America and on the small tragedies that come with aging. Foote is a screenwriter and playwright of the highest calibre. What a treasure!
