Almost a decade removed from the international scandal with Roberto Rossellini that put a halt to her Hollywood career, Ingrid Bergman made a rather short-lived American comeback with three films: 1956's Anastasia, and in 1958, Indiscreet and Inn of the Sixth Happiness. Based on Alan Burgess' biography of missionary Gladys Aylward, -The Small Woman, Inn is by far the "larger" of the latter two films, and Bergman was back in charming, charismatic form in the lead role. Chinese authorities prevented director Mark Robson from shooting on the island of Formosa, and the movie was instead filmed in Wales. Robert Donat (The 39 Steps, Goodbye Mr. Chips) came out of retirement to play the aging "Mandarin," but fell seriously ill during the final weeks of production on the film and died a few days after it wrapped. Robson was nominated for his second Academy Award for Inn. Brendon Hanley, All Movie Guide
