The film represents Henry Fonda's return to the screen after an absence of seven years, part of which was spent playing the eponymous officer in the immensely successful stage version of Thomas Heggen's novel. As cargo officer and second in command on a supply ship during World War II, the easygoing Lt. Doug Roberts is excluded from a much desired combat role while playing whipping boy to dyspeptic tyrant Captain Morion (James Cagney). Ensign Frank Pulver (Jack Lemmon), a brash yet cowardly wheeler-dealer, entertains Roberts with his elaborate pranks while the fatherly Doc (William Powell in his last screen appearance) offers advice. The young crew tries every available means of killing boredom, including eyeballing the nurses on a nearby island through a telescope, and Roberts does what he can to get them the R and R they badly need. The film had a troubled production history, mostly because of conflicts between Fonda, a friend of author Thomas Heggen's, and Ford, who wished to make changes that Fonda disliked. Shortly after physically attacking Fonda, Ford suffered a ruptured gallbladder and was replaced by Mervyn LeRoy. Fonda is excellent, and Lemmon gives an inspired, Oscar-winning performance in a film that flows evenly from the comic to the tragic and stands among the best World War II films produced in the 1950s.

  • Enjoyed it!

    This movie is a classic and appropriate for all ages. It is funny, and poignant. A good, light entertaining movie for the family.

    This movie was made in the late 1950's, early 1960's, it's a very good movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone. The movie is family friendly, so the whole family can watch it. There are no cuss words, which is really nice compared to the movies of today, where that is all you hear is cuss words. There isn't any blood and guts either, it's still a war movie, even though Mr. Roberts is told by men who worked the supply ships in the Pacific during the war. The supply ships didn't really see that much action, they were away from the fighting. Please get this movie, watch it and own it.
