From Here to Eternity uncensored 60 years later

An original version of 1951 novel From Here to Eternity is to be reissued digitally, with previously censored references to homosexuality restored.

The heirs of author James Jones have struck a deal with ebook firm Open Road to put out a new edition that includes two scenes with gay content.

Jones's novel, about US soldiers serving in Hawaii in the months prior to Pearl Harbor, was filmed in 1953.

1. Take a look at "50 Years of Queer Cinema"


Out, outrageous, provocative, and proud, this comprehensive anthology and library resource reviews 500 of the best of Hollywood's output of gay, bisexual, lesbian, transgendered, and queer questioning films, with a special emphasis on how gays changed the movies we know and love. Conceived as a working guide to what viewers should stock within their DVD queues, it reviews everything from blockbusters to indie sleepers, with about a dozen special features discussing the ironies, betrayals, subterfuge, and gossip of who, what, and how it happened when the film world's closet doors slowly creaked open beginning in 1960.

I picked it up a couple of months ago...haven't put it down since.
