A Town Like Alice

1956 NR

As a member of a group of women and children captured by the Japanese army during World War II, British citizen Jean Paget (Virginia McKenna) is forced to endure a long march in search of a women's labor camp. Along the way, she meets a charitable Australian soldier (Peter Finch) who supplies them with much-needed rations -- a man she repays in an unexpected way. Jack Lee directs this gripping drama, based on the novel by Nevil Shute.
