From Here to Eternity is a 1953 Academy Award winning drama film based on the novel of the same name by James Jones. It deals with the troubles of soldiers stationed on Hawaii in the months leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbor. The material of the rather explicit novel had to be considerably toned down to appease the censors of the time. For example, in the famous beach scene, it is less obvious that Deborah Kerr and Burt Lancaster's characters have actually been having sex than it is in the novel.
