Get All The Greatest Big Band & Jazz Music On 10 Different CD's From The
Roaring 20's To The Swinging Jazz 30's And To The Post World War II Era...
The scene is Schofield Army Barracks in Honolulu, in the languid days before the attack on
Pearl Harbor, where James Jones' acclaimed war novel From Here to Eternity brought the
aspirations and frustrations of several people sharply into focus. Sergeant Milt Warden
(Burt Lancaster) enters into an affair with Karen (Deborah Kerr), the wife of his commanding
officer. Private Robert E. Lee "Prew" Prewitt (Montgomery Clift) is a loner who lives by his
own code of ethics and communicates better with his bugle than he does with words. Prew's
best friend is wisecracking Maggio (Frank Sinatra, in an Oscar-winning performance that
revived his flagging career), who has been targeted for persecution by sadistic stockade
sergeant Fatso Judson (Ernest Borgnine). Rounding out the principals is Alma Lorene
(Donna Reed), a "hostess" at the euphemistically named whorehouse The New Congress Club.
All these melodramatic joys and sufferings are swept away by the Japanese attack on the
morning of December 7. No words could do justice to the film's most famous scene: the
nocturnal romantic rendezvous on the beach, with Burt Lancaster's and Deborah Kerr's bodies
intertwining as the waves crash over them.
