From Here to Eternity script
Synopsis: From Here to Eternity is a 1953 drama film directed by Fred Zinnemann and based on the novel of the same name by James Jones. The picture deals with the tribulations of three U.S. Army soldiers, played by Burt Lancaster, Montgomery Clift, and Frank Sinatra, stationed on Hawaii in the months leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbor. Deborah Kerr and Donna Reed portray the women in their lives and the supporting cast includes Ernest Borgnine, Philip Ober, Jack Warden, Mickey Shaughnessy, Claude Akins, and George Reeves.

Warden goes out of the Dayroom. Prew puts up the cue and

follows him.

EXT. COMPANY STREET

TRUCKING SHOT:

as Prew and Warden walk along the porch, Warden a few paces

ahead. They go into the Orderly Room.

INT. ORDERLY ROOM - DAY

MEDIUM SHOT:

as Prew and Warden enter. Maggio is sweeping the room.

MAZZIOLI, a bespectacled, intellectual-looking Private First

Class, is at the clerk's desk, opening it, taking out papers,

etc. Prew sits on a bench as Warden goes over to Mazzioli.

WARDEN:

Mazzioli! Grant went to the

hospital yesterday. Did you make up

his sick record? Did you make a

note for the morning report?!

You're the Compny Clerk. The lousy

Sickbook is your job!

4.

MAZZIOLI:

Those medics didn't get the

Sickbook back till late yesterday --

I'll tend to it right now -

WARDEN:

Thanks. I already done it for you.

ANOTHER ANGLE:

Maggio has swept his way over to Prew. He stops sweeping now,

stares at the other man as if still incredulous.

MAGGIO:

But you the beat bugler they got

over at Shatter. You probly the

best on this whole Rock.

In b.g., Warden has turned from Mazzioli and is looking at

Prew. Prew looks back coolly, answers Maggio thoughtfully.

PREW:

That's true.

Maggio wags his head, bends over to pick up wastepaper

basket.

MAGGIO:

Well, friend, I feel for you. But

from my position I can't quite

reach you.

WARDEN:

Ten-sh-HUT!

Prewitt, Mazzioli and Maggio spring to attention. The screen

door bangs and CAPTAIN DANA HOLMES enters shot. He wears

cavalry boots and spurs. He is about forty, unsure of

himself, therefore always too certain with his men. He nods

pleasantly.

HOLMES:

At ease. Good morning, men.

Anything special this morning,

Sergeant Warden? I've only a few

minutes.
