Until They Sail Four sisters in New Zealand fall for four U.S. soldiers en route to the Pacific theater in WWII. They Couldn’t Have The Love They Wanted, So They Took The Love They Could Get!
First impressions can be deceiving…
Preconceived notions aside, the story is a compelling one, centering around four sisters in WWII New Zealand. Fontaine, Dee, Jean Simmons, and Piper Laurie all turn in admirable performances as the Lesley sisters in a plot that can sometimes seem a little implausible, or at the very least, ahead of it’s time. Paul Newman also co-stars as a Marine officer who plays a pivotal role in the lives of the sisters, namely Simmons’ character.
Not the best role of any of the principal actors’ careers, but definitely worth seeing, especially if you are drawn to WWII era dramas.
A black and white gem
