THE PURPLE PLAIN (Theatrical Release United Kingdom 1954)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Purple Plain—Gregory Peck—is a good movie and tells a fairly good story. The best part of this story comes after the main character’s plane crash lands. The acting quality varies throughout the film from good to suitable and back again as the movie moves along. The portrayal and the presentation are good. The writing is fair.
