Plot Summary
In 1944, Lt. Cmdr. Charles Madison (James Garner) prides himself on being a cynical coward unwilling to step foot on shore during D-Day. His relaxed lifestyle attracts Englishwoman Emily Barham (Julie Andrews), whose husband and brother died in the war. But when Rear Adm. William Jessup (Melvyn Douglas) resolves to earn the Navy prestige by ensuring that a sailor will be the first to die in the invasion, he assigns the ill-fated duty to Madison, who will now be among the vanguard.

    Great satirical anti war movie. The dissertation by Garner to the British widow is compelling. I recall Garner\'s real life comment on his purple hearts earned in Korea : \"there\'s nothing heroic about being blown off a hill\". The movie seemingly fits his view.
