“Stirring and entertaining…Mr. Mitchum is a rugged, blunt marine and Miss Kerr is a pretty, compassionate, resolutely devoted nun. In and among the action episodes…the personal drama is treated with tenderness and tact.”
—Bosley Crowther, The New York Times
“An intriguing yarn…directed by John Huston…with a good measure of humor and bravado.”
With a clever script by director John Huston and screenwriting veteran John Lee Mahin, Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison (1957) stars Roberts Mitchum as a no-nonsense Marine and Deborah Kerr as a dedicated nun: a decidedly odd couple stranded on a South Pacific island overrun by hostile Japanese forces during World War II. Their struggle to survive and their growing friendship are beautifully captured by the camera of superb cinematographer Oswald Morris, and given further support by composer Georges Auric’s lovely score (available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track).
