He’d do anything to leave the quiet of the ship to join in the “action”. Trouble is, the captain of the ship, is a bit of a tyrant, and isn’t willing to sign Roberts’ transfer requests. Also on board is Ensign Pulver, who avoids work as best he can, whilst living off the riches of his buying and selling. Roberts and the crew are in constant battle, even over the smallest of disagreements.
Plot: Mr. Roberts is as an officer who’s yearning for battle but is stuck in the backwaters of World War II on a non-commissioned Navy ship run by the bullying Captain Morton.

So fun, so real, so heartbreaking
This film is a Classic, with a capital C! You have a great story, a great cast, laughs, tears and a dose of reality. How can you go wrong with Henry Fonda, James Cagney, William Powell and Jack Lemmon?
What always struck me about this film was its realism. I spent some time on an auxiliary ship in the navy, and it’s not glamorous. This film perfectly captures the life aboard non-combatant ships. They provide a vital service, but rarely get recognized for it. It also demonstrates what real leadership is. The main duty of an officer is to provide leadership and to see to the welfare of his troops. Mr Roberts is a shining example of a great officer.
The film also shows that the enemy isn’t always on the other ship. I have seen captains like Cagney’s, and you often spent more time defending your crew from those skippers, than you did from the opposing force. As Mr Roberts said, “….I know in wartime they scrape the bottom of the barrel…”, well, they sometimes scrape that barrel in peacetime.
There’s a great blend of comedy and drama throughout; but, just when you are feeling good, it delivers a punch to the gut. This is life as it is, not an idealized world.
Sign on board for a tour of duty with this film. You’ll be glad you did.
Veteran Actors Show They Still Have It
The combination of William Powell, in his last role, Henry Fonda, and Jack Lemmon is enough of a pull. But to have James Cagney as the nasty and overbearing captain is nirvana. The film needed more female influence, and Betsy Palmer supplies that to a degree, but she is given nothing much to work with.
The end result, though, is great, and the actors show they have the timing and the grace to carry this one through magnificently.
