Rating: B- -- Another director (not Arthur Hiller) would have been more suitable in translating to the big screen Paddy Chayefky's witty WWII serio-comedy. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- Though a bit overstuffed with long-winded speeches, Chayefsky's scabrously funny script brims with snappy, crackling dialogue. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Classic anti-war comedy. Ahead of its time.

Rating: B -- I would have appreciated the film more if it was less talky and if it didn't completely ignore the obvious that fighting madman Hitler was necessary. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Victor/Victoria's Julie Andrews and James Garner headline this earlier milestone comedy from screenwriter Paddy Chayefsky and director Arthur Hiller. Garner plays Charlie Madison, an officer who cares nothing about glory. That attracts war widow Emily Barham (Andrews), who's had her fill of seeing men go to war and never return. But the pair's culture-clash romance is in peril when Charlie sees that the line to become the navy's defunct hero forms behind him.
