A DOMINEERING CAPTAIN, HIS PET PALM TREE & A DEVILISH CREW MAKE LIFE ABOARD A WWII CARGO SHIP MISERABLE FOR A CARGO OFFICER.
Henry Fonda re-created his Broadway hit for this 1955 film that was mostly directed by Fonda's frequent collaborator, John Ford (Young Mr. Lincoln, My Darling Clementine)--an ailing Ford was replaced at some point by Mervyn LeRoy--and the results are exceptionally fine. A perfect cast, including James Cagney's irascible captain, William Powell's thoughtful physician, and Jack Lemmon's Oscar-winning Ensign Pulver, give Fonda the right boost to portray his ennui-burdened officer with dignity, self-effacing humor, and not a trace of self-pity. A wonderful film. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to the VHS Tape edition.

Fonda, Cagney, Powell, & Lemmon! This is one of my favorites. A captain bligh type (Cagney) is stood up to by the first officer (Fonda), until a deal it cut so the men can... Read morePublished on June 29 2003 by JediMack
This is a great war movie although it's not about the aspect of war that we usually see in Hollywood. There's an explosion, but it's not from enemy action. Read morePublished on May 31 2003 by Ken Bailey
