Deborah Kerr -Contrasting her roles in From Here to Eternity (1953) and Separate Tables (1958)

On her birthday today 9/30- I must remember the juicy rendezvous aggressive Deborah Kerr as the Captain’s wife dared to have with Burt Lancaster as Sgt. Warden in From Here to Eternity (1953) and contrast it- in much amazement- with her role as the shy timid Sibyl in Separate Tables (1958) and her repressed relationship with the shocking (at least to Sibyl’s mother played to perfection by Gladys Cooper) Oscar winning here David Niven as Major Pollock. I do not think we are going to see a beach rendezvous here between Kerr and Niven in director Delbert Mann’s much underrated movie!
