"Has an integrity, a courage, a warm liveliness about it which invites the deepest admiration." —Virginia Graham, The Spectator


Hailed by critics as the best-ever account of life in the peacetime army, From Here to Eternity marked a significant turn in the careers of its unconventional cast and offered a new, humanistic view of the pre-war days leading up to the bombing of Pearl Harbor. On its 50th anniversary, the Los Angeles Times wrote, “the film was rapturously received from the moment it was released in 1953 and remains, half a century later, a singular cinematic experience, one of the landmarks of American film,” and every December, all across the nation, screenings of this eight-time Academy Award-winner welcome film and history enthusiasts to pay tribute to both the soldiers  of WWII and to the exceptional artists and filmmakers who honored their service with this highly emotional tale of love and loss.
