Robert Mitchum and Deborah Kerr star in a heart-warming romance as big as the Australian Outback--The Sundowners. Australia, 1920s. Ida Carmody (Kerr) loves her husband, Paddy (Mitchum), and Paddy loves the wandering life traveling the wide-open Outback as a sheep drover. Ida and their son, Sean (Michael Anderson), long to settle down on a ranch of their own. But no ranch can ever be big enough to hold hard-drinking, hard-gambling Paddy, no matter his intentions. And Ida should know that forced to choose between the home she yearns for and a wanderlust life with Paddy, she will follow her heart ... and her husband.
