A classic

6 years, 4 months ago at Jun 9 21:47
Since it is such a classic, I was quite eager to check it out. On top of that, it was directed by Fred Zinnemann, a director I have enjoyed even more after each movie, so I had some rather high expectations. Eventually, I thought it was pretty good, even if it is in fact the weakest movie directed by Zinnemann that I have seen so far. The point is that the cast was indeed quite impressive (Burt La... read more

Description: It's 1941. Robert E. Lee Prewitt has requested Army transfer and has ended up at Schofield in Hawaii. His new captain, Dana Holmes, has heard of his boxing prowess and is keen to get him to represent the company.

Meanwhile Sergeant Warden starts seeing the captain's wife, who has a history of seeking external relief from a troubled marriage. Prew's friend Maggio has a few altercations with the sadistic stockade Sergeant 'Fatso' Judson, and Prew begins falling in love with social club employee Lorene. Un ... (more)

"Watched: January 29, 2020. Director: Fred Zinnemann Starring: Burt Lancaster as Sgt. Milton Warden Montgomery Clift as Robert E. Lee Prewitt Deborah Kerr as Karen Holmes Donna Reed as Alma - aka Lorene Frank Sinatra as Angelo Maggio I enjoyed this film as a whole. However, I must admit I was a bit disappointed. I was expecting much, regarding the high ratings on Listal and IMDB and the success it had at the Academy Awards in 1954 (8 Wins, 13 nominations). Also, this cast is quite imp"

" Notes: Eventually, I thought it was pretty good, even if it was in fact the weakest movie directed by Fred Zinnemann that I have seen so far. The point is that the cast was indeed quite impressive (Burt Lancaster, Montgomery Clift, Deborah Kerr, Frank Sinatra, Ernest Borgnine, Jack Warden) and the story was not bad but that was in fact the issue, it was not bad but nothing really amazing in my opinion.

50 Moments of Cinematic Wonder (50 movies items)

"FROM HERE TO ETERNITY - A PASSIONATE ROLL IN THE SURF It might be the most famous love scene ever shot but what is it that makes the sight of Deborah Kerr and Burt Lancaster's roll in the waves remain such a source of wonder. For one thing, it feels like a moment of real passion compared to the chaste pecking that neutered so many censor-pleasing movies of its era. Kerr and Lancaster convince completely as lovers, their adulterous clinch achingly capturing the desperation of a snatched moment. "

"Fred Zinneman's epic adaptation of James Jones's novel about a peacetime army barracks in the days leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbour was a huge sensation at the time of its release and remains a big, impressive film to this day. Rather than relying on action and spectacle like many other war films, 'From Here to Eternity' benefits most from an incredibly strong cast, with all five of the lead actors being Oscar nominated for their performances. This is why that famous scene of Burt Lanca"
