From Here to Eternity is the classic World War II drama that won the 1953 Academy Award for Best Picture and 7 other Oscars. The film follows the intersecting lives of an Army unit in Hawaii in the months leading up to the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941. Robert E.

When Prew refuses, the Captain uses his subordinates to make his life miserable. Only Angelo Maggio (Frank Sinatra, in an Oscar-winning performance), remains a friend to Prew's, but he soon faces harassment from a bullying Sgt. 'Fatso' Judson (Ernest Borgnine) and eventually lands in the stockade. Prew begins seeing girl Lorene (Donna Reed), a local "hostess." Meanwhile, the Captain's wife, Karen (Deborah Kerr), begins an affair with Sergeant Warden (Burt Lancaster), who she pressures to join the officer training program so that she can leave her husband and marry him.
