Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this movie! Oct. 24 2003
By TFR
Format:DVD
The film "Mister Roberts" has everything.
Great Story, great cast, great meaning. If I had my choice of only a dozen movies to recommend to anyone, this would be one of them.
After fifty years, it's still an inspiring story of how sometimes small, seemingly insignificant details and the consideration of the human factor contribute to effective leadership.
In fact, this film is still in use as a motivational tool in the U.S. Naval Services.
I highly recommend this movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Review is of DVD - Not the movie July 18 2004
By Yarby
Format:DVD
Given the "classic" status of this movie, it seems meaningless to discuss the content for this review. Thus, I will stick to reviewing Warner Brothers DVD release of the film.
First, I commend them for the inclusion of the excerpt of an Ed Sullivan "Toast of the Town" (1948) tribute episode featuring the movie's stars. This was really interesting viewing.
However, for the movie itself....this is the worst Warner release I have seen since "National Velvet". The picture frequently becomes out of focus, and the picture is often very undefined throughout the whole movie. There are a couple of places in the movie where the picture jumps, as if the film from which the transfer was taken "skipped a sprocket".
Overall, this is an embarassing release of a classic movie....despite the great extras which are included. Warner needs to go back to the drawing board on this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars War Time Classic Jan. 15 2011
Format:DVD
Mr. Roberts is a classic World War II movie, with big stars and a great story line detailing life at sea away from the action and the glory. Fabulous movie, and the quality of the dvd itself was excellent. I strongly recommend this movie to anyone with in interest in WWII,or the navy.

Based on the /46 novel and a /48 Broadway play of the same name,Mister Roberts came to the screen in July of/55.A good movie and a TV staple since the 60s(actually remade into a short lived TV series then),you would think Warner Brothers would have had the chutzpah to release it to DVD in a little better condition than they have here;but more on that later.
The movie stars James Cagney as Capt.Morton,Henry Fonda as Mister Roberts,Jack Lemmon as Ensign Pulver,William Powell as Doc and a wonderful cast of supporting players.
The story takes place in WW2 aboard a supply ship which plies the back waters of the Pacific.Mister Roberts desperately wants into the war having had it with being a bridesmaid but never a bride,so to speak.Every week he hands in a transfer request to the irrascable Capt.Morton and every week it's rejected.This goes on throughout the whole movie and at one point Roberts makes a bargain with the Captain to stop writing transfers so the crew would finally get their first shore leave in over a year.Pulver is a general no show around the ship,preferring to stick in his cabin and planning to do things he never carries out.By total accident he bumps into the Captain who doesn't even know he's been aboard the ship for 14 months!As the film winds along we see and easily sympathize with the crew and Roberts'frustration at the actions and taciturn nature and demeanour of the Captain.In the end Roberts finally gets a transfer off the ship,but suffers a cruel twist of fate.
The movie moves at a good clip generally and the personnels' various frustrations with their superiors and /or themselves builds nicely throughout.

Mister Roberts (Widescreen)

This is an excellent comedy, with a top-notch cast. It hasn't lost its appeal, despite its age(1955).

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite movies July 15 2003

I loved this movie when I saw it many years ago, it's timeless and still funny after all these years. I'm so glad it's available on DVD and now part of my movie collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whooo did it?! Whooo did it?! June 29 2003
Format:VHS Tape
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 have liberty. Lemmon is just behind fonda in rank (hidden behind). We have William Powell as the doc. Things get real interesting and fun when the captain wins an award represented by a palm tree.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie May 31 2003
Format:DVD
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. You see aircraft carriers, battleships and destroyers but they are off in the distance. This movie is set on a cargo ship (of all places). It deals with the efforts of one man trying to get into the war and his battles with his tyrannical commanding officer who was played brilliantly by James Cagney.
I'd have to say the best scene in the movie is when the SP guy is telling about the things the crew did on the island during liberty. But the coolest scene is the look on James Cagney's face at the end of the movie.
This one is one that I can watch over and over again.
