War. Freedom. Loyalty. Love. Manhood. Ernest Hemingway's most powerful themes are gloriously captured in Islands In The Stream. George C. Scott and director Franklin J.

Scott plays Thomas Hudson, a sculptor whose self-imposed isolation in the Bahamas is ended by two forces: the visit of his sons ... and the outbreak of World War II. The film is touching in its details of a father's love- and heroic in its defiance of tyranny. The rich sweep of a literary legend washes over Islands In The Stream
