The Long Ships
A historical lemon indeed from Richard Widmark and Mr. Poitier.
"Just another apple"
A very balanced movie “Mister Roberts” is.
Jack Lemmon, William Powell, Henry Fonda and James Cagney are serious powerhouses but I feel they compliment each other to near perfection in this film.
By the constant genius of Billy Wilder. I don’t know why I’m surprised that Stalag 17 was that good….
But. It. Is.
Totally worth staying up for!
From the Betty Grable references to Holden’s split-second salute at the end…..perfection really.
STALAG 17: William Holden is a tough talkin POW. there is a Nazi stoolie in his barracks thwarting escape attempts! and everyone thinks it is him!
it is smart and funny and dark and Billy Wilder directs it, so obviously it is perfect.
also it is set during Christmas. so get in the spirit, ya nerds
