Wackiest Ship in the Army ★★½ 1961

A completely undisciplined warship crew must smuggle an Australian spy through Japanese waters during WWII. Odd, enjoyable mixture of action and laughs. Became a TV series. In the middle of the war effort, Nelson straps on a guitar and sings “Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans.” 99m/C VHS, DVD . Jack Lemmon, Ricky Nelson, Chips Rafferty, John Lund, Mike Kellin, Patricia Driscoll; D: Richard Murphy.
