From Here to Eternity (1953)

From Here to Eternity is a 1953 World War II romance directed by Fred Zinnemann and starring Montgomery Clift as a misfit soldier in the US Army who is stationed at Pearl Harbor just prior to the surprise Japanese attack. During his time at the base, he clashes with both his commanding officer and the hardened 1st Sergeant Burt Lancaster. The film's cast included Ernest Borgnine, Claude Akins, George Reeves, Donna Reed (who received the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress) and Frank Sinatra (who received the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor). From Here to Eternity also received Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Director and was based on a novel by James Jones, who also wrote The Thin Red Line. The majority of the filming was done at the actual Schofield Barracks in Hawaii.
