    World war II story

    Great historical significance with setting in Honolulu, Hawaii leading up to and including the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

    Outstanding cast with very special performances by Burt Lancaster, Montgomery Clift, & Frank Sinatra. Interesting tidbit is this is the movie referred to (or at least implied) in the Godfather ... i.e., "This movie, this role will make him a big star". The particular Godfather scene is in Hollywood where Robert Duvall has been sent to meet with movie mogul (Walsh) to discuss Johnny Fontaine.

    Brings back a lot of memories with young stars & starlets and depiction of Hawaii before the boom years of the nineties.

    Unforgettable

    I was only familiar with the perfume and the ad carrying the same name and cover picture. But this story is beyond the beauty and scent; it touches one's heart. Both the story and the performance are unforgettable - a true classic masterpiece!

    A Very Convincing First Sergeant

    This is a case of an outstanding movie being adapted from a great book. 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 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.
