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.
The now classic scene between Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr in the rushing water on the beach was not written to take place there. The idea to film with the waves hitting them was a last minute inspiration from director Fred Zinnemann.
Sergeant Maylon Stark:
Leva tells me you've been eyeing the Captain's wife like a hound dog at hunting time.
Saluting is done incorrectly - several characters salute by placing the blade of their hand to the center of their forehead, etc.
