The Journey - Official Trailer

Autoplay

In 1956, a band of international refugees flee Budapest, escaping the bloodshed of the Hungarian uprising. Among them are Lady Diana Ashmore (Deborah Kerr) and her lover, Hungarian Paul Kedes (Jason Robards, Jr.), who is forced to hide both his nationality and the wound he suffered in a street battle. The frightened refugees are halted at the Austrian border by Soviet Major Surov (Yul Brynner). Surov finds himself drawn to Diana as he interrogates the refugees in a hunt for suspicious persons. If Paul is discovered, everyone's life may be in danger. The Journey reunites Kerr and Brynner three years after they won acclaim in The King and I.
