Three Came Home is the dramatic screen adaption of Agnes Newton Keith's war-time prison memoir. Separated from her husband, Keith (Claudette Colbert) and her young son must survive in captivity until the end of the war. The realistic and harrowing film was directed by Oscar nominee Jean Negulesco, and features former Japanese silent screen star Sessue Hayakawa as the stern camp commandant Colonel Suga. "It will shock you, disturb you, tear your heart out," wrote the NY Times' Bosley Crowther. "But it will fill you fully with a great respect for a heroic soul."
