Overview
Nominated for eight 1966 Academy Awards®, including Best Actor for Steve McQueen and Best Picture, The Sand Pebbles blends explosive action with stirring drama as it tells the tale of war-torn China in 1926, and an American sailor (McQueen) caught in the middle, who has given up trying to make peace with anything—including himself.
