Plot Summary
The daughter of rich weapons manufacturer Andrew Undershaft (Robert Morley), idealistic young Barbara (Wendy Hiller) rebels against her estranged father by joining the Salvation Army.

Based on the play by George Bernard Shaw, the film's comedic social commentary pulls no punches.

    I saw this movie on TV this past week. Being a lifetime Salvationist, I found it entertaining and hisrorical. Rex Harrison and Wendy Hiller make it well worth viewing.
