Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 12/11/1998
"...Huston comes up with a doozy….Builds up surprising heat, mainly from the actors' tender intimacy..." -- Rating: B
USA Today - 04/11/1997
"...The story has its charms, and there are terrific performances by Robert Mitchum and Deborah Kerr..."

Description by OLDIES.com:

This beautiful romantic drama, set during World War II, co-stars Robert Mitchum and Deborah Kerr (whose performance earned her a Best Actress Oscar nomination in 1957).

Stranded on a Pacific Island, an Irish nun (Kerr) and a heroic Marine sergeant live a life of constant peril, hiding from Japanese troops who have a base on the island. Eventually, the sergeant falls deeply in love with the religious woman, which compels her to question her vows. With its surprising blend of suspense and humor, excellent performances and acclaimed direction by John Huston, this "unique and powerful" (Los Angeles Times) film is a true classic.

Product Description:

While hiding from a Japanese military offensive on a desolate Pacific island, a Marine sergeant (Mitchum) and his only fellow survivor, an Irish Roman Catholic novitiate on a humanitarian mission (Kerr), search for food, engage in philosophical sparring, avoid sexual tension, and struggle to survive. Huston again pairs hardened hero with an indomitable woman (think African Queen) and lets the sparks fly. Academy Award Nominations: Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actress: Deborah Kerr.
