Hawaii

About

Von Sydow plays a stern missionary spreading the word in 19th-century Hawaii while struggling to prevent wife Andrews's affections from straying towards salty skipper Harris. This was originally Fred Zinnemann's pet project, but Hill replaced him at the helm before filming commenced. He fights a losing battle to keep the sprawling story in check but, aided by his cast, imbues the piece with the stormy passion that this mammoth production requires.
