Jack Lemmon, Mister Roberts
Jack Lemmon was BOTD in 1925 in Newton, Massachusetts. One of (IMO) the most gifted actors in the history of actors, he has been a personal favorite since I can remember. While he was, obviously, an uncommonly talented comedic actor, he was equally wonderful in dramatic roles.
One of the many roles in which he proved this truth was Mister Roberts (1955, directed by John Ford). Lemmon VERY deservedly won the Academy Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his phenomenal performance.
