A really good film featuring two very compelling romances set in a 1941 Hawaii. Great performance from Montgomery Clift as Prewitt. Nominated for 13 Academy Awards and winner of 8 including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Supporting Actor (Frank Sinatra).

Romantic drama set during WWII. This film takes place off of the battlefield and focuses a group of characters and their relationships. Good acting, in a story filled with fighting, drinking and smooching.

The love story shown here is actually compelling, as juxtaposed against WWII in a way that doesn't overtake the drama with needless action scenes (cough, cough - Pearl Harbor.)

I thought it was a decent movie. But, nothing special.

From Here to Eternity review

The film revolves around Captain Dana "Dynamite" Holmes (Philip Ober), Private Angelo Maggio (Frank Sinatra) and Karen (Deborah Kerr). A simplistic plot with powerful performances. Main concern of this reviewer would be the overloaded cast which lacks sufficient character development/background and pacing. Battle sequences were authentic but its conclusion lacks some impact after the whole build-up of the affair. Screenplay had some nice lines such as: "Nobody ever lies about being lonely." "Maybe back in the days of the pioneers a man could go his own way, but today you got to play ball." and "I can understand how you feel, but those things happen." Overall, From Here to Eternity felt like an improved version of Pearl Harbor, with less cheesy scenes.

"From Here To Eternity" by Yojimbo

From Here To Eternity is something of a classic and relaunched the career of Oscar winner Frank Sinatra who allegedly got the part because a friend of the family made an offer that couldn't be refused...It's a rather soapy affair as it follows the trials and tribulations of a group of soldiers posted at a base in Pearl Harbour in the days leading up to the Japanese attack. To be honest, it's not really the kind of film I usually enjoy; the love scene between Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr is one of the most famous ever filmed, but I personally much preferred the on base drama between he, stubborn conscientious objector Montgomery Clift and likable sidekick Sinatra than the romantic melodrama that punctuates it. But that's probably just because of that pesky Y chromosome. The plot could e...
