Movie synopsis
While hiding from a Japanese military offensive on a desolate Pacific island, a Marine sergeant (Mitchum) and his only fellow survivor, an Irish Roman Catholic novitiate on a humanitarian mission (Kerr), search for food, engage in philosophical sparring, avoid sexual tension, and struggle to survive. Huston again pairs hardened hero with an indomitable woman (think African Queen) and lets the sparks fly. Academy Award Nominations: Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actress: Deborah Kerr.

Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison

Review For: Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison (DVD, 2003, Fox War Classics)

One of the truly great off beat WW2 movies....Robert Mitchum and Debra Kerr, playing a marine and a nun stranded on a island in the pacific which eventually becomes a Japanese base, trying to survive and each coping with their repective missions of their calling. There are moments within the movie that tug at one's heart strings while overall it is a great pleasure watching 2 fine actors of their time (1957). If one is a world war two buff, this movie is a must.

Review For: Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison (DVD, 2003, Fox War Classics)

Very well developed drama about a Marine (Robert Mitchum) who's ship gets sunk and he washes ashore on a remote Pacific island with only one inhabitant, a young Irish Catholic novitiate. Sister Angela (Deborah Kerr) is all alone since the old priest who was with her died two days earlier. All of the local people had been taken away by the Japanese. Allison is an orphan from Chicago, named for the Allison St. entrance of the orphanage, where his mother left him. He has found a home in the Marines. Afraid that the Japanese will return any day, he sets about building a raft to escape to a U.S. held island. Suddenly, a Japanese plane is overhead and the church and raft are destroyed by bombs. Mr. Allison and Sister Angela are forced to hide in a cave that Allison came across while scouting the island. The Japs do return, they come in force. Over time the obvious happens, and Mr. Allison falls in love with Sister Angela. She is very devout and is troubled by his attention and questions as to whether or not she should take her final vows. He understands that he has upset her and apologizes. He continues to protects her, and eventually American Naval forces arrive. Allison disables the Japanese guns and they are rescued. This was a great human interest movie.

Review For: Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison (DVD, 2003, Fox War Classics)

Robert Mitchum at his best. With just two main characters in the story,
this film is well worth seeing. Deborah Kerr gives a wonderful performance
as the nun who is helped by Robert Mitchum. Most of the DVD's I have are
the older movies, and this one is among the best.

I am a Deborah Kerr fan, this is a good
clean movie that everyone can enjoy. She
was nominated for an academy award for this
picture.
