Mister Roberts is a veritable gem. Humour balances the Captain's maniacal reign, as a real stickler for the rules. Without a scrap of humanity in him. Mister Roberts and the rest of the Crew and Officers, soon put him to rights! Laughed out loud at the scene where the Palm is thrown over the side, and the Captain throws a spectacular wobbly.
The Great Race is also another Jack Lemmon gem. Here, he plays the nefarious Professor Fate, with Peter Falk, as his dimwitted sidekick, Max. Tony Curtis is the hero, with Natalie Wood as the love interest.
Out of these 2 Films, both rate highly.
And will provide a light afternoon's entertainment on any grotty weathered-day, outside.
