Reviews

Deze uitstekende verfilming van het gelijknamige boek van James Jones kreeg acht Oscars, waaronder die voor beste film, de beste regie, beste acteurs (Frank Sinatra en Donna Reed) en het beste scenario. Het verhaal verteld over het militaire leven in Hawaï aan het begin van WO II net voor de aanval op Pearl Harbor. Het is een combinatie van romantiek en actiescènes en echte oorlogsbeelden. Speelfilmencyclopedie (zesde editie) beoordeelt de film met vier sterren: '(...) strakke versie van James Jones' roman; krachtig en boeiend.' De dvd-versie bevat als extra o.a. commentaar gedurende de hele film door de zoon van regisseur Fred Zinnemann.
