Heaven Knows, Mr Allison
Heaven Knows, Mr Allison - Released March 13, 1957. Directed by John Huston.
Mitchum is a hard-bitten U.S. marine stranded on the same Pacific island as nun Deborah Kerr during World War II. The two become fervent allies (co-habitating in a hidden cave) while surrounded by Japanese soldiers who have taken control of the island. Complications ensue when they discover over time a mutual affection but wildly opposing goals in life, as you might expect between a nun and a marine. Based on the Charles Shaw novel, with the script co-written by John Huston and John Lee Mahin.
