Mister Roberts

An excellent comedy about an old-bucket-of-a-ship in World War II whose job it is to supply fighting ships with necessary supplies and the sheer boredom of the crew doing it. Henry Fonda does an excellent job as Mister Roberts, an officer who persistently sends letters to get himself transferred out much to the dismay of the incredibly strict captain, played by Jimmy Cagney. In one of his earliest films, Jack Lemmon specifically does a wonderful job as the cowardly but lovable Ensign Pulver, winning an Academy Award. An excellent film.
