A Tribute to Jeffrey Hunter
The brief but beautiful voice-over spoken by Jeff at the beginning of the film,
which begins, "No man is an island, entire of itself...." is excerpted from a
famous poem written by the 17th-century poet John Donne. The well-known
book and film title "For Whom the Bell Tolls" is also taken from the same poem.
