From Here to Eternity

The talented Fred Zinnemann ('A Man for All Seasons') perfectly captures the static isolation and boredom that envelops the military personnel in peacetime Hawaii on the eve of American participation in World War II. Zinnemann counter-poses social history with riveting drama: Burt Lancaster is a career soldier who seduces a commander's unattended wife, Deborah Kerr. Montgomery Clift staggers social convention by falling for Donna Reed, a prostitute. Frank Sinatra and Ernest Borgnine add quality performances as bitter rivals. Winner of eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Director.
