Set in Pearl Harbor in the months leading up to the Japanese attack, it focuses on two professional soldiers: Prewitt (Montgomery Clift), a hard-headed ex-boxer given 'the treatment' by his commanding officer to force him to fight in the regimental boxing championships, and the company's Top Sergeant (Burt Lancaster), who is having an affair with the officer's frigid wife (Deborah Kerr).
Daniel Taradish's screenplay is a masterpiece of snappy construction, perfectly mirrored by Fred Zinnemann's directorial style that brings out both the toughness and the sentiment with a convincing lack of sensationalism. And what a cast: Lancaster a convincing mixture of toughness and emotional vulnerability, a surprisingly sexy Kerr, Donna Reed playing tough against type, Borgnine at his meanest and a wonderful array of character actors. Clift may make an unlikely boxer, but his performance is one of his best, as is that of Sinatra, always under-rated as an actor on those occasions when he made an effort, as his doomed best friend Maggio.
With a good DVD transfer, this is let down by the extras - only a teaser trailer, a making-of featurette that runs a full two minutes (!!!), a brief extract from a documentary about the director and an audio commentary by Tim Zinnemann and Alvin Sargent. This is still well worth adding to your collection, though. Classic films often don't live up to their reputations. This one does.
This film is a love story that focuses on two seperate couples, but even these love stories aren't particuarly romantic in the traditional sense(despite the classic waves on the beach scene), and are quite psychological and dark. The film isn't a war picture, the Pearl harbour attack only coming at the very end. The film isn't a soldiers getting ready for war film either as the plots focus is completaly on the romances and an on going story about getting Montgomery Clift into the boxing team. Considering the film is set in Pearl Harbour, you don't really get a feel for the location, the main bulk of the film could have been set anywhere, you don't see much of Hawaihi. You see alot of interiors of barracks and bars and nightclubs with just the occasional interesting outdoor shot(like the classic beach scene). If the film had been made a few years later in widescreen I think it would have looked alot better, but then you probabaly wouldn't of got this fantastic cast. Burt Lancaster is amazing,especially in action at the end and during a brilliant drunk scene, which I found hilarious. Montgomery Clift plays his part with convincing intensity. Donna Reed and Deborah Kerr play their parts very believably as women trying to take control of their futures with their men, with Kerr wanting Lancaster to become an Officer and Reed after reluctantly(at first) but finally desperately falling in love with Clift trys all she can to protect him. Frank Sinatra and Ernest Borgnine also feature strongly.
You could compare the film to Casablanca, and it's almost as good.
FROM HERE TO ETERNITY presents a realistic portrait of army life in Hawaii immediately before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The film features strong performances by Burt Lancaster, Deborah Kerr, Frank Sinatra, Donna Reed, Ernest Borgnine and Montgomery Clift. An extremely competent supporting cast includes Jack Warden, Philip Ober and Mickey Shaughnessy.
Burt Lancaster makes a convincing first sergeant. One who is running the show and is full of knowledge about how the army really works. He also has good instincts when it comes time to act as he demonstrates in the showdown with the sadistic "Fatso" played by Ernest Borgnine. Borgnine himself is exceptional in his most famous impersonation of a villain.
Frank Sinatra definitely deserves his Oscar in the role of the defiant Maggio. However, after seeing Lee Marvin play a drunk it is hard to appreciate any other actor's attempt compared with Marvin's portrayal of one in PAINT YOUR WAGON.
FROM HERE TO ETERNITY was a relatively low-budget production but it still managed to receive five Academy Awards and eight nominations.
In this landmark film, passion and tragedy collide on a military base as a fateful day in December 1941 draws near. Private Prewitt [Montgomery Clift] is a soldier and former boxer being manipulated by his superior and peers. His friend Maggio [Frank Sinatra] tries to help him but has his own troubles. Sergeant Warden [Burt Lancaster] and Karen Holmes [Deborah Kerr] tread on dangerous ground as lovers in an illicit affair. Each of their lives will be changed when their stories culminate in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
