Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

Inn of the Sixth Happiness
—a true story film that you can’t miss to love. It stands as one of the cleanest, morally friendly films on the Hollywood movie shelf, the epitome of heart, goodness, and well-being. Ingrid Bergman superlatively plays Gladys Aylward, a female missionary serving China before World War II. It’s a classic from the word go and stands as a lasting testimony to the goodness of the human spirit.
