There are TWO versions of this film on VHS. The short version -- and the 3 tape (278 min) version. GET the latter. I have both, and Natalie Wood's BRILLIANT performance is severely minimized in the short version, as it leaves out her most powerful scenes!!! Over all, its a well done film from the mini series genre of the late 70's early 80's. William Devane gives a strong performance along with the ever SEXY Natalie Wood (middle age didn't dim her light at all). Also includes a young Kim Bassinger. Nancy J/Ordinaryfool

"He was the best soldier. Hell, he was the only soldier."

Okay, I'm not going to go so far as to say this version of the James Jones novel is better than the 1954 "classic" movie, although in some respects I do think it is superior, in others not, I believe its merits make it the equal of the celebrated film.

The greatest strength this miniseries has for lovers of the novel is having the time to tell the full story, fleshing out several of the subplots, most especially Maggio's ordeal in the stockade, while also having time to more deeply examine the relationships between Warden and Karen Holmes and Prewitt and Loreen. So much of the story was necessarily truncated in the film that much of what was loved in the novel was missing.

Next of course, the miniseries could be more honest about the sexuality of the relationships, and more graphic about the brutality visited upon Prew in "the treatment" and, again, Judsen's persecution and torture of Maggio.

Finally, casting. And here the heresy. I find this cast in some ways superior to the film. Although she displayed a harder edge, it was a bit of a stretch buying Donna Reed as a prostitute. The very young Kim Bassinger, though inexperienced as an actress, brings the right beauty and youth to the role and the depiction does not have to be sanitized as it was in the 1950's film. I know Sinatra won the Oscar for his Maggio, and he was fine. But I think a very young Joe Pantalione did just as well, and had the benefit of more screen time, especially in his brutal descent into madness. I am fond of Deborah Kerr in many of her roles, but quite frankly for my money she can't hold a candle to Natalie Wood's Karen Holmes for pure sexual heat coupled with vulnerability.

I was expecting the original length mini series,this version is chopped by more then half, a major disapointment and in my opinion misleading.

Natalie Wood Shines in 'From Here to Eternity'..................

I enjoyed this version more than the old 50's movie because the story in more in depth.....being 4 hours and 38 minutes long. ... there was a lot more time for character developement. Also it is a lot more sexual than the 50's movie. In this vertsion the prostitute, played by Kim Basinger, is a bit more slutty than Donna Reed's version.
It's also the only movie I've liked William Devane in. He and Natalie Wood really heat up the screen and do some fabulous work together. Natalie Wood is brilliant in this TV movie. She is always so vulnerable and fascinating to watch. She has some really great scenes and sometimes breaks your heart.
It's a wonderful tale of many lives converging on Hawaii that infamous day in December which kicked off the war for the USA.

I have been looking for this movie for many years and I found it here at Amazon.com in it full 4.5 hour format without it be cut down. (The movie From Here to Eternity [VHS] with Natalie Wood)
I was very pleased to find it after the years that I have search for it for so long. And it was in new condition. I would like to see it or get in DVD format but at least I have it on VHS. It's a great movie and staring Natalie Wood, which is one of my favorite actresses.
I rate the move a 5 stars and it a great find if you can find it. Thanks Amazon.

The version I purchased was cut considerably. Originally a six hour mini-series, my version was condensed to 110 minutes. While enjoyable if you've read the novel by James Jones, there were several key scenes missing. The acting is very good, but the missing scenes make it difficult to recommend.

Where is the rest of the mini series?! This VHS has been cut to shreds! Of course it has my darling Natalie Wood in the lead in her Golden Globe winning performance and as usual she is stunning in a role originated by Deborah Kerr...it's worth the viewing just to watch Miss Wood in a performance that simply drips with sensuality and longing!
