The Wackiest Ship In The Army

The Wackiest Ship In The Army, 1960 film starring Jack LemmonRicky Nelson and John Lund.  Really?? The Army?? Oh well, it was the sixties and they were making a comedy!  Funny too, Jack Lemmon never disappoints me in his films.

It’s about a Lt Crandall (Lemmon) who is tricked into commanding a beat up old sailboat during the war to sneak a spy into the Japanese held area of the Pacific.  With a crew that knows nothing about sailing and a rookie first officer the result is pure comedy.  Everyone knows how I enjoy classic films, especially comedies.

The cast was good and they seemed to use real scenery and ships so this film also showed us some history.  Great job here.
