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.
