Commentary from Movie Maverick Mike

Cast From Here to Eternity
#kspscinema


Our feature “From Here to Eternity” managed such iconic casting that the actors and their roles could now be considered cliche:

All American Burt Lancaster in his first (mostly) heroic role
The intense (and apparently oft drunk) Montgomery Clift as intense, self-destructive Pewitt
Donna Reed cast against type as sex-bomb Alma
Deborah Kerr as The Woman Done Wrong
Character actors Philip Ober, Jack Warden and Ernest Borgnine doing what they do best - playing versions of themselves in small roles (as they would for years to come)
Frank Sinatra as The Comeback Kid - well, that’s the way Oscar saw it at the time!

Wikipedia notes somewhat redundantly that as of 2019 “the [main] cast members of this movie are all dead” - true, but their time in these roles will never be forgotten.
