MISTER ROBERTS (1955), 123 min., Not Rated.  

A comedy-drama about life aboard a Navy cargo ship in Pacific waters during World War II. The monotonous non-combat duty of a fun-loving crew is enlivened by a feud between the petty, intolerant captain (James Cagney) and an impetuous, highly-respected cargo officer (Henry Fonda) whose continuous efforts to get a transfer to combat duty are blocked by the captain. Jack Lemmon won an Oscar as irrepressible Ensign Pulver.
