Until They Sail

A bittersweet story of sisters (Jean Simmons, Joan Fontaine, Piper Laurie and Sandra Dee) embracing love in a time of war, but it's the sensitive romance between a war widow (Simmons) and a jaded captain (Newman) that forms the tale's poignant heart.

    The remastered edition of "Until they sail" does not disappoint: Black levels were rich, details are nice, and even the audio track clean.
    This is another extremely competent DVD transfer However the print is not flawless,there are lots of white specks.
    WB Archive did a nice job!

    early newman with top cast

    Comments about Until They Sail:

    UNTIL THEY SAIL IS A LATE 50'S HOME FRONT FILM BASED ON NEW ZEALAND WIVES AND WOMEN DURING WORLD WAR II. PAUL NEWMAN HAD ONLY BECOME A MAJOR STAR WITHIN THE PAST 3 YEARS, AND IS TEAMED WITH A STRONG BACK UP CAST INCLUDING JOAN FONTAINE, JEAN SIMMONS, PIPER LAURIE AND A YOUNG SANDRA DEE PLAYING SISTERS. AN ENTERTAINING THOUGH SHALLOW ADAPTION OF JAMES A MICHENER'S NOVEL.

    The New York Herald Tribune said the film "has moments of genuine tenderness and truth." dIRECTED BY ACE DIRECTED ROBERT WISE, JUST PRIOR TO HIS BREAK-OUT SOUND OF MUSIC, THE FILM IS VERY ENJOYABLE AND A MUST FOR FANS OF THE STARS. THE CINEMASCOPE PRINT IS EXCELLENT AND DOES NOT VARY FROM A PRESSED DISC. STRONG M-G-M POLISH, BLACK AND WHITE, MONO SOUND.

      Comments about Until They Sail:

      A wonderful movie that is not widely known as one of the better films with Paul Newman. Although he is a supporting player to the four female leads, he is none the less as handsome as ever. Jean Simmons is beautiful and her character is so engaging that you know you can't stop watching until you see how her life turns out. This has been a long time favorite and am thrilled to finally have it on DVD- Try this one, you won't be sorry!

            Comments about Until They Sail:

            Until They Sail is the best home front WWII movie I have seen. This is a very entertaining and credible film based on a short story by James Michener and directed by Robert Wise. It is very well acted by the entire cast. In particular, Jean Simmons and Paul Neuman create real romantic chemistry from their limited time on screen. As an extra bonus, the film provides some WWII history as background to the main storyline. Movies of this genre this do not get any better.
