Mr. Winkle Goes to War ★★★½

No one could play both snarling gangster and mild-mannered, henpecked husband as adeptly as Edward .G Robinson, and in this likeable war movie he’s the latter. He’s a bank clerk who gets the chance to realise his dream of working with his hands when he’s inducted into the army during WWII, and becomes a war hero in the process. The material is slight, but Robinson carries it off with style.
