Special Veterans Day Screening: FROM HERE TO ETERNITY (1953)
With legendary actors Burt Lancaster, Deborah Kerr, Frank Sinatra, Donna Reed and Montgomery Clift, 13 Academy Award nominations and 8 Oscars including Best Picture, FROM HERE TO ETERNITY (1953) stands the test of time as one of the great classics of an era. At an Army barracks in Hawaii in the days preceding the attack on Pearl Harbor, lone-wolf soldier and boxing champion "Prew" Prewitt (Montgomery Clift) refuses to box, preferring to play the bugle instead. Hard-hearted Capt. Holmes (Philip Ober) subjects Prew to a grueling series of punishments while, unknown to Holmes, the gruff but fair Sgt. Warden (Burt Lancaster) engages in a clandestine affair with the captain's mistreated wife (Deborah Kerr).
