Mister Roberts DVD

SKU ID #307199
$19.98
The USS Reluctant carries cargo along World War II's forgotten Pacific seaways. Beyond the horizon, the real war passes its stir-crazy crew by. Mister Roberts, directed by John Ford and Mervyn LeRoy, is the classic story of men fighting to survive not war's dangers but it indignities.

Henry Fonda's reprise of his Tony®-winning Broadway role returned him to movies after seven years away. Jack Lemmon won his first Academy Award® as hapless, lecherous Ensign Pulver. James Cagney's petty, scrappy Captain makes a fierce adversary. In his final film, William Powell makes world-weary Doc a sage for the ages. Mister Roberts has moments of unforgettable humor. But sadness tempers the comedy. No shot is fired. No blood is spilled. Yet Mister Roberts endures as one of our most truthful war sagas

      Comments about this product:

      Mister Roberts is a must-see! A GREAT cast with a great story. Yes, it's a Navy cargo ship in WWII, but the real story is the friendships and fireworks between the characters. Overall, a story that will touch your heart. And with a cast this great, it is a rare treat to see them all together in one film.

                          One of the BEST character study type films ever made. The viewer really gets to know all the characters vividly and can feel their joy and sadness throughout the production. Its some of the best work by the leading stars in this movie that they ever produced.
