"[E]nlivened by the sexy sparks between James Garner and Julie Andrews..."
A cynical American Naval officer first clashes with and then falls in love with his idealistic British driver who is a war widow. After convincing her to enjoy life and stop being so altruistic, he is selected by the Navy's PR machine to become "the Unknown Sailor," the first man to die landing at Normandy on D-Day, a death that will prove that the Navy can't be equaled, especially by the Army, in bravery. A sometimes brilliant script by Paddy Chayevsky elevates this one well above the normal fare.
Description by Warner Home Video:
Director Arthur Hiller pairs Julie Andrews and James Garner as an unlikely couple during WWII in this delightful satire centered around the U.S. military. James Coburn co-stars.
