Lush M-G-M melodrama that won an Oscar for its visual effects (a tidal wave and an earthquake among them) stars Lana Turner and Donna Reed as 1840s British sisters both in love with sailor Richard Hart. When Hart, who prefers Reed, settles in New Zealand to run a lumber business and writes a letter while drunk mistakenly asking Turner to marry him, she agrees, only to later learn the truth. Van Heflin, Frank Morgan, and Edmund Gwenn also star. 141 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
