Summary: Robert Francis is at the center of the story as Willis Keith, a newly-minted ensign assigned to the destroyer/minesweeper U.S.S. Caine during World War II. Soon after his arrival, the ship gets a new captain, Lt. Comdr. Philip Francis Queeg Humphrey Bogart, a tough, no-nonsense veteran officer who tries to turns the crew into proper sailors and the Caine into a tight ship, engendering resentment from some of the men and several of his officers. A veteran of difficult years of service for too long, Queeg has insecurities about himself, his command, and his career that begin to manifest themselves as spells of temper over small details that cause him to make mistakes. Lt.Keefer (Fred MacMurray), the glib-tongued communications officer, begins making suggestions to the ship's sincere but overburdened first officer, Lt. Steve Maryk (Van Johnson), that Queeg may have mental problems. Maryk initially rejects these suggestions, and tries to support the captain, but conditions deteriorate to the point where Maryk is forced to relieve Queeg of command, and is charged -- along with Keith, who supported him -- with mutiny. Enter Lt. Barney Greenwald (Jose Ferrer), a lawyer in civilian life, who reluctantly agrees to help them, mostly out of sympathy for the impossible predicament in which Maryk has found himself trapped. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi

In bringing Herman Wouk's novel about life aboard a destroyer-minesweeper in the Pacific during World War II to the screen, producer Stanley Kramer was working under numerous constraints. Knowing that The Caine Mutiny would be Kramer's final film for the company, Columbia Pictures president Harry Cohn made sure the budget on The Caine Mutiny was cut to the absolute bone, and took the chance that Bogart's name, coupled with the popularity of the book, would ensure a hit film. From such a financial and creative straightjacket, a great film was made, mostly by virtue of Edward Dmytryk's direction and some excellent central performances: not just Humphrey Bogart's tired, troubled Lt. Comdr. Queeg, but also Van Johnson as the well-meaning but ultimately foolhardy first officer Lt. Maryk; Robert Francis as the naïve and very foolish Ensign Keith; Fred MacMurray as the glib-tongued, manipulative Lt. Keefer; and Jose Ferrer as the unwilling defense attorney Barney Greenwald, who achieves a victory that has nothing to do with justice, right and wrong, or truth. Bogart gives one of his finest late-career performances, calling up the same mixture of bravado, fear, and irrationality that informed his performance as Fred C. Dobbs in John Huston's The Treasure of the Sierra Madre six years before, crawling with little neurotic affects that make him startling to watch. Coupled with MacMurray's smooth-talking treacherousness and Johnson's stalwart performance, plus Francis' bright-eyed, bushy-tailed enthusiasm, the characters make for a memorable and compelling two-hour-plus dramatic experience. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi
