heaven knows mr allison (1957) - john huston

An easy going and laid back performance is produced by both Deborah Kerr and Robert Mitchum, who star in 'Heaven Knows Mr Allison' as the nurse and marine stranded on a desert island during World War Two, and trying to avoid the Japanese that come ashore. Comparisons are made between his role as a marine, and hers as a nun, and they (obviously)  fall for each other, but there is no great big sloppy and unbelievable ending, which is an improvement on many films. A pleasant and relaxing way to pass the time, and it would have looked great in the cinema years ago (in CinemaScope!).
