  • Wonderful Holden & Kerr Movie

    I saw this movie years ago & I never forgot it. William Holden was and is an American treasure! I think Miss Kerr is a wonderful actress no matter what movie she was in. I can not imagine why this movie is not on DVD. It seems we have to beg to get these movies released. Please let us have this one. I'm a classic movie buff but I'm sure there are others out there who would buy this one!

    I call the movie simply: Beauty and the Beast. That say it all.

    I was aware of this movie's ressemblance with "from here to Eternity", but there wasn't any. The two lovers were very different: rich, well-bred with a wealthy family and a widow (she), a poor social climber, rude, married (!) arrogant and an Indian (he). Whereas D.Kerr's role is typical for her (a lady) Holden's character is atypical for him. Wearing a moustache, being rude and arrogant, unsensitive, he remembered me of Gregory Peck's role as "Johnny Ringo". As a teenager I fell in love with his part in "Picnic". So I was shocked about his different look in "Profane". He played his part well, even though the plot seemed to be inconsistent. Three quarter oft he movie he was the leading man, the straightforward officer, a man without ambitions for women. And then, suddenly, he ends up "mentally handicapped", who is only able to say "forgive me". Very deceiving. I had expected something conciliable and logical, like in his former war movie "force of arms". Despite his chiefly and misogynous manner, the love should have changed him, but not in this "robotic" way. The plot failed, trying to be unsual. The more I watch it the more I love it, regardless the deceivnig end.

  • Holden and Kerr are superb

    This is a great story about how a person can want to be better but when they arrive at where they want to be they are still rough around the edges. Holden's character has come up through the ranks but the expression "An Officer And A Gentleman," doesn't apply to him. Deborah Kerr is outstanding as usual. This movie is a good character study.
