MOVIE: From Here to Eternity

July 17, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

eternityThe second film in our Sinatra film festival is 1953’s FROM HERE TO ETERNITY.  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. Pvt. Angelo Maggio (Sinatra) is his only friend and supporter.  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).  FROM HERE TO ETERNITY won the Academy Award for Best Picture, while also earning Sinatra an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.
