Synopsis The Columbia TriStar special edition video #80693 is part of a limited edition Academy Awards sell through package that comes with a free copy of Oscar's Greatest Moments, a classic collection of some of the most memorable moments from Oscar telecasts. Contract player Aldo Ray was the original choice for Prewitt by Columbia Studio chief Harry Cohn, but Fred Zinnemann and novelist James Jones wanted Montgomery Clift. Filmed at Schofield Barracks in Hawaii. The film's technical consultant was Retired Brigadier General Kendall J. Fielder, Ret. Additional cast: Merle Travis (Sal Anderson), Arthur Keegan (Treadwell), Douglas Henderson (Corporal Champ Wilson), and John Bryant (Captain Ross).I never knew it could be like this.--Deborah Kerr to Burt Lancaster, on the beach...[It] remains incredibly potent stuff......[A] solidly built drama of bully politics and discontent in the US army just before Pearl Harbor...Rapturously received from the moment it was released in 1953, FROM HERE TO ETERNITY remains, half a century later, a singular cinematic experience, one of the landmarks of American film.An all-star cast brought what was considered an unfilmable novel to the screen with skill and grace with this story of the loves, hopes, and dreams of those in a close-knit Army barracks in Hawaii shortly before the attack on Pearl Harbor. Montgomery Clift portrays a former boxer who refuses to fight after blinding a friend in the ring and is sent to the remote outpost as punishment for his insubordination. Love and tragedy abound in this unflattering look at military life and American thought before the war. Director Fred Zinneman's Oscar-winning film is based on the novel by James Jones.4 stars out of 5 -- [I]t's a leisurely but classy mix of romance, army politics and Hollywood heroism.
