I love this movie! I like the chemistry between John Wayne and Lee Marvin. I think Marvin steals the show in this one. He does so many funny bits: he has a quart of beer tied around his arm for awhile, I love when he smashes the sailor guy in the beginning and then asks for "permission to leave the ship" and jumps overboard, he gets super-excited to receive a toy train set and then proceeds to assemble it in record time.....I could go on and on. So much fun stuff in this film.
