      I am reviewing the movie, Mister Roberts, which was created back in 1955. Although an oldie, it is definitely a goodie. I accidently came across this movie on television about six years ago, and I immediately was hooked.

      This movie is filled with brilliant actors, including Henry Fonda as Mr. Roberts, Jack Lemmon as Pulver, James Cagney


      as the captain, and William Powell as Doc.

      Jack Lemmon won his first Academy Award for this role. This movie’s setting takes place during WWII.

      The ship that the main characters are on serve as a cargo ship, and they are stuck doing tedious, boring work as the real fighting takes place beyond them. Mister Roberts is eager to join the fight, but every letter he sends in is disapproved by his captain, with whom he has an extremely rocky relationship with.

      James Cagney is unforgettable in his roll as the eccentric, angry captain, whose love is the ship’s little Palm tree. He hates Roberts with all his might, and will do anything in ...

      his power to make him miserable.

      Jack Lemmon is hilarious as Ensign Pulver, an extremely lazy and helpless case, who sits around in his bunk all day. William Powell is perfect as the ship’s doctor and Mr.

      Roberts’ friend on board. Eventually, Mister Roberts makes a deal with the captain in order for the restless crew aboard to

      have liberty, and as a result Mister Roberts is drawn to his last straw.

      He performs an act that enrages the captain, and Mister Roberts is at last able to be transfered off the ship, due to the help of the crew aboard. This film has moments of unforgetabble humor.

      It is a true masterpiece for everyone.
