In this landmark film, passion and tragedy collide on a military base as a fateful day in December 1941 draws near. Private Prewitt (Montgomery Clift) is a soldier and former boxer being manipulated by his superior and peers. His friend Maggio (Frank Sinatra) tries to help him but has his own troubles. Sergeant Warden (Burt Lancaster) and Karen Holmes (Deborah Kerr) tread on dangerous ground as lovers in an illicit affair. Each of their lives will be changed when their stories culminate in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Winner of eight Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Supporting Actor (Frank Sinatra), FROM HERE TO ETERNITY provided truly career defining roles for Frank Sinatra as Prewitt's buddy and Donna Reed (IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE), as a not-so-wholesome "club hostess".
