In Hawaii in 1941, a private is cruelly punished for not boxing on his unit's team, while his captain's wife and second-in-command are falling in love.
Fred Zinnemann was not keen on the casting of Donna Reed as Lorene and had Julie Harris in mind for the role. However, as he had bucked Columbia head Harry Cohn over casting Montgomery Clift, Frank Sinatra and Deborah Kerr, he felt he had no right to insist on putting another actress in the part. Much to his surprise, Reed surpassed all his expectations.
Robert E. Lee "Prew' Prewitt:
A man should be what he can do.
An obvious stunt double is used for Galovitch in his fight with Prewitt. Actor John Dennis has a fair-haired crew cut. His double has darker, thicker hair which recedes noticeably at the temples.
