- 1938 – Gladys Aylward brings children across the mountains
The true story of an English parlor maid (Ingrid Bergman) who journeys to China and opens an inn for tired, hungry mule drivers crossing desolate mountain trails. Gradually overcoming the natives’ hostility, she converts a powerful Mandarin to Christianity. But her greatest feat is achieved when she leads 100 homeless children to safety across enemy-held terrain.
Adapted from the novel “The Small Woman” about the true-life story of Gladys Aylward, this powerfully poignant film is inspiring entertainment from beginning to end.

Wonderful, heart-warming story to be enjoyed by the whole family. Worth watching over and over again!
The movie Inn of the Sixth Happiness doesn’t fully follow along with the book, but it’s still a wonderful movie about Gladys Aylward who is determined to be a missionary in China during the war. My favorite part of the whole movie where she takes 100 children behind the Japanese lines through mountains and even a river to take those children to safety.
