The Wackiest Ship In The Army, 1960 film starring Jack Lemmon, Ricky 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.
