Directed by Robert Parish


Screen icon Gregory Peck (On the Beach, Moby Dick, Night People) gives a commanding and convincing performance in this exotic World War II drama. An engrossing and visually alluring film full of harrowing suspense, The Purple Plain is a classic war film everyone should see. After his wife is killed during the Blitz, Forrester (Peck) is bent on achieving one thing in the war: his death. But when his plane crash-lands in enemy territory, he realizes that he must save himself in order to guide his two injured companions to safety. As they cross the Burmese desert with no food and little water, Forrester's will to live grows stronger than ever! Stylishly directed by Robert Parrish (The Wonderful Country, The Destructors) and based on a novel by H.E. Bates (Summertime).
