The Spirit Of St. Louis Review


Very Good
Charles Lindbergh and Jimmy Stewart -- "Americana" doesn't have a better definition than these two larger-than-life characters. The film is a straightforward tale of the making of Lucky Lindy, focusing on his 1927 Trans-Atlantic flight from New York to Paris, 33 1/2 harrowing hours that inaugurated the era of flight. Billy Wilder's movie isn't particularly daring in its telling, but as a piece of American -- and world -- history, The Spirit of St. Louis is something everyone should see.

Mister Roberts Review


Very Good
A universally overrated diversion, Mister Roberts is a pleasant diversion but not a lot more. The story of the most boring ship in the WWII-era Navy (a lowly cargo ship), we find its denizens desperate for action, resorting to pulling practical jokes for kicks. Among them are Jack Lemmon (who won an Oscar for a trivial role) and Henry Fonda, who proves unilaterally that he was not made for comedy, but James Cagney's crazed captain steals the show. The last half-hour of the film is depressing.
