‘From Here to Eternity’ Returns to the Big Screen for Two Days Only

The Acclaimed War-Time Drama Will Show at Movie Theaters

Nationwide December 11 and 14

 

DENVER – November 21, 2016 – “A man don’t go his own way, he’s nothing.” Audiences can go their own way to cinemas when Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) and Sony Pictures Entertainment bring the compelling war-time drama “From Here to Eternity” (1953) back to the big screen for a special two-day event this December as part of Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies’ TCM Big Screen Classics series.

TCM Big Screen Classics: From Here to Eternity will screen on Sunday, December 11 and Wednesday, December 14 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. local time (both days) and will include eye-opening commentary from Turner Classic Movies host Ben Mankiewicz on how all is not always fair in love and war, or in this classic film.

Winner of eight Academy Awards® in 1953, including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Frank Sinatra) and Best Supporting Actress (Donna Reed), this patriotic narrative about war and love is a film to be remembered for all of eternity. Based on the National Book Award-winning novel by James Jones, the film was directed by Fred Zinnemann from a screenplay by Daniel Taradash.

It’s 1941. Robert E. Lee Prewitt (Montgomery Clift) has requested Army transfer and has ended up at Schofield in Hawaii. His new captain, Dana Holmes (Philip Ober), has heard of his boxing prowess and is keen to get him to represent the company. However, ‘Prew’ is adamant that he doesn’t box anymore, so Captain Holmes gets his subordinates to make his life a living hell. Meanwhile Sergeant Warden (Burt Lancaster) starts seeing the captain’s wife (Deborah Kerr), who has a history of seeking external relief from a troubled marriage. Prew’s friend Maggio (Frank Sinatra) has a few altercations with the sadistic stockade Sergeant ‘Fatso’ Judson (Ernest Borgnine), and Prew begins falling in love with social club employee Lorene (Donna Reed). Unbeknownst to anyone, the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor looms in the distance.
