Mister Roberts, a timeless story.

Mister Roberts is one of my all time favorite movies. Besides imparting a story line of camaraderie and duty, it suggests a multitude of life lessons about friendship and duty. Duty to country and friends. I never tire of watching Mister Roberts. Henry Fonda is perfect as the title character. James Cagney is ideal as his nemesis. Watch it for the first time over and over again. It never ages.
