Military comedy that aired on NBC during the 1965-66 season and ran for 30 episodes. Mister Roberts
was based on the classic 1955 film of the same name that starred Henry Fonda, James Cagney, Jack Lemmon, and William Powell. Roger Smith, Steve Harmon, Richard X. Slattery, and George Ives respectively played the lead roles in the TV series which was about life on board the U.S. Navy cargo ship Reluctant
during the Pacific conflict in World War II. If the series proved one thing it was that a classic film does not always translate into a classic television series.
