  • Still, Roberts and Pulver are the best of friends, two very different characters brought together by World War II, as so often was the case

      Henry Fonda excels in this military drama about Mister Roberts, a young officer who wants nothing more than to serve his country in the Navy, only he wants to be a part of the fight, not serving on a freight dump, which is pretty much what his current ship is. Roberts

      is constantly asking for transfers, but the cantankerous captain consistently refuses them.

      At his side, is Ensign Pulver, played beautifully by Jack Lemmon. Pulver is always talking big about getting back at the captain. He has a lot of ideas, but he doesn’t quite have the guts to carry them out.

      Still,


      • Roberts and Pulver are the best of friends, two very different characters brought together by World War II, as so often was the case.

        There’s plenty of drama as the action goes along, and there are also a lot of laughs. That’s why Mister Roberts is so wonderful: it’s a combination of

        reality, of life, which is sometimes intense and sometimes humorous.

        The ending of Mister Roberts is extremely emotional. Pulver finds his courage, which is a hoot to see, but it comes at a high price.

        Mister Roberts is one of the greatest WWII motion pictures. Fonda and Lemmon made a great team.
