To celebrate the storied history of the Govett-Brewsters origins as The People’s Cinema and later the Regent Cinema, the Len Lye Cinema presents an ongoing series of films honouring the history of the cinema and its programme.
At an Army barracks in Hawaii in the days preceding the attack on Pearl Harbor, lone-wolf soldier and boxing champion "Prew" Prewitt refuses to box, preferring to play the bugle instead. Hard-hearted Capt. Holmes subjects Prew to a grueling series of punishments while, unknown to Holmes, the gruff but fair Sgt. Warden engages in a clandestine affair with the captain's mistreated wife.
US, 1953, 118 min., Dir. Fred Zinnemann
