10. From Here To Eternity (1953)
Fred Zinnemann (Best Director), Frank Sinatra (Best Supporting Actor), and Donna Reed (Best Supporting Actress) all took home awards in the pre-war From Here To Eternity. The film investigate the lives of an ensemble cast before the events of Pearl Harbor and the United States entering World War II. The movie stands out for the adult nature of the cast and realize the serious nature of their military roles.
Daniel Taradash crafted a beautiful screenplay that won an Oscar and was brilliant in how it allowed the stories to unravel. The film does not get enough credit as it should, however it is a work of art that should be studied by any serious movie connoisseur, or film student that wants to increase their knowledge and appreciation of the industry.
Brilliant list. Forgot about a lot of these so i will be spending some time watching them,especially Bridge over the River Kwai and All about Eve.. Thanks
