Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison movie scene

Robert Mitchum and Deborah Kerr in Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison

The 1957 adventure-filled romantic drama Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison starring Robert Mitchum (Night of the Hunter) and Deborah Kerr (Black Narcissus) comes to Blu-ray from Twilight Time.

Featuring a clever script by director John Huston (The African Queen) and screenwriting veteran John Lee Mahin, the movie stars Mitchum as a no-nonsense Marine and 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.

The Blu-ray of Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison contains the following features:

-Isolated Music & Effects Track
-Fox MovieTone News
-Original Theatrical Trailer
-Liner notes by Julie Kirgo

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each, so be prepared to order this one directly from distributor Screen Archives NOW!
