Our screening on August 14 (second Sunday now, remember) is a 1957 DeLuxe Colour CinemaScope film. Adapted from a 1952 novel and directed by John Huston, the film was nominated for Best Actress (Deborah Kerr) and Best adapted Screenplay. It follows the fortunes of a marine (Robert Mitchum) and a nun (Kerr) shipwrecked on a desert island during WWII and was the first pairing of Deborah Kerr and Robert Mitchum (they would star in four movies together). Kerr observed that Mitchum was "a far more complex person than his lazy, relaxed manner would have you believe, a man who hides many lights under many bushels." Mitchum never received formal acting lessons which, he said, "is like going to school to learn to be tall."
