  • An action packed romantic adventure, BHOWANI JUNCTION is an adaptation of the John Masters novel. This period film is a drama of chaos and revolt in which a young Anglo-Indian woman is forced to choose between her two races and twin allegiances when they are reflected in the men she loves. Ava Gardner plays Victoria Jones, a beautiful, half-caste young woman who returns to her homeland of India after World War II. She finds the country in a state of chaos, with the British military still occupying the land and Indians rioting to protest the foreigners' presence. When Victoria meets British colonel Rodney Savage (Stewart Granger), who is in charge of troops at Bhowani Junction; he promptly falls in love with her, however, she is in love with Patrick Taylor (Bill Travers), the Anglo-Indian rail superintendent. The film, which was shot on location (mostly in Pakistan) in CinemaScope, boasts a number of impressive, beautifully photographed sequences.
