MISTER ROBERTS - The USS Reluctant carries cargo along World War IIs forgotten Pacific seaways. Beyond the horizon, the real war passes it's stir-crazy crew by. Mister Roberts, directed by John Ford and Mervyn LeRoy, is the classic story of men fighting to survive not wars dangers, but it's indignities. Henry Fondas reprise of his Tonyr-winning Broadway role returned him to movies after seven years away. Jack Lemmon won his first Academy Awardr* as hapless, lecherous Ensign Pulver. James Cagneys 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. Run time : 2 hours and 1 minute
