Product Details

Four times BAFTA nominated, The Purple Plain stars Gregory Peck as Squadron Commander Forrester during the Burma Campaign.

Forrester is on a transport flight over Burma in 1945 when his plane crashes. He and his passenger, Blore, attempt to trek through the jungle to safety with their injured navigator.

Forrester is stern and hard after the loss of his wife earlier in the war, but his heart is softened by the kindness of a beautiful Burmese girl, Anna, and her friend, Miss Menab, a missionary.

Blore cannot cope with the pressure and shoots himself, which leaves Forrester with the most gruelling test yet - to struggle back to base with the wounded navigator on his back.
