Editor's Note
GUNS OF NAVARONE: One of the greatest war movies of all time, with an all-star cast and a gripping plot based on Alistair MacLean's novel. A commando team is sent to a Greek island to destroy the giant guns of World War II Germany, which are controlling a strategic channel in the Aegean Sea. This was a groundbreaker in the special effects department. Academy Award Nominations: 7, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best (Adapted) Screenplay. Academy Awards: Best Special Effects.

FROM HERE TO ETERNITY: With skill and grace, an all-star cast brought to the screen what was considered an unfilmable novel, the story of the loves, hopes and dreams of those in a close-knit army barracks in Hawaii shortly before the attack on Pearl Harbor. Montgomery Clift portrays a former boxer who refuses to fight after blinding a friend in the ring and is sent to this remote outpost as punishment for his insubordination. Love and tragedy combine in this unflattering look at life in the American military before the war. Based on the novel by James Jones.

THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI: One of the all-time great war films, THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI is yet another classic from the marvelous David Lean (LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, DR. ZHIVAGO). The film is an outstanding and psychologically complex adaptation of Pierre Boulle's 1952 novel about English POWs in Burma forced to build a bridge to aid the war effort of their Japanese captors. British and American intelligence officers conspire to blow up the structure, but Col. Nicholson (a fabulous Alec Guinness), the commander who supervised the bridge's construction, has acquired a sense of pride in his creation and tries to foil their plans. The climax is one of the great finales in film history. Although credited to screenwriter Carl Foreman, the script was actually written by blacklisted writer Michael Wilson. The film garnered seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor (Guinness).

Professional Reviews

Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide 9 of 10
[Guns] Explosive action film about Allied commandos during WW2 plotting to destroy German guns; high-powered adventure throughout this first-rate production, highlighted by Oscar-winning special effects.

The New York Times 10 of 10
[Eternity] Out of From Here to Eternity, a novel whose anger and compassion stirred a postwar reading public as few such works have, Columbia and a company of sensitive hands have forged a film almost as towering and persuasive as its source. - A.H. Weiler

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
[Bridge] ...one of the few [war movies] that focuses not on larger rights and wrongs but on individuals... By the end, we are less interested in who wins than in how individual characters will behave... The story in the jungle moves ahead neatly, economically, powerfully... - Roger Ebert
