Starring Deborah Kerr, Robert Mitchum, Peter Ustinov
Robert Mitchum and Deborah Kerr star in a heartwarming romance as big as the Australian outback. Ida Carmody (Kerr) loves her husband, Paddy (Mitchum), and Paddy loves the wandering life traveling the wide open outback as a sheep drover. Ida and their son, Sean (Michael Anderson Jr.), long to settle down on a ranch of their own. But no ranch can ever be big enough to hold hard-drinking, hard-gambling Paddy, forcing Ida to choose between the home she yearns for and the man who holds her heart.
