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.

In From Here to Eternity, you can glimpse an uneasier future for America, with the social wreckage and the pretending. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- A high-calibre Hollywood prestige drama, sharp and sobering, with top-drawer work from Lancaster, Clift and Sinatra. Full Review
Daily Telegraph (UK)

The story is a bit too crowded and episodic, but immensely gripping. Full Review
Maclean's Magazine
Nov 13, 2019
Rating: 4/5 -- The film is anonymously directed, functionally paced and hysterical at times, though it seduces as a hot-blooded spectacle that stitches emotional detail onto the epic canvas of history. Full Review

Product Description:

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.
