The Caine Mutiny (1954) Poster

E.G. Marshall: Lt. Comdr. Challee


  • Lt. Comdr. Challee : Mr. Keith, how long have you been in the navy?

    Lt. Keith : A little over a year, sir.

    Lt. Comdr. Challee : Do you know how many years Lieutenant Commander Queeg served at sea?

    Lt. Keith : No.

    Lt. Comdr. Challee : As a matter of fact, Lieutenant Commander Queeg has served over eight years. I ask you: which of you is better qualified to judge if a ship is foundering?

    Lt. Keith : Myself, sir, when I am in possession of my faculties and Commander Queeg is not.

    Lt. Comdr. Challee : Tell me, Mr. Keith, how would you describe this loss of faculty? Did the captain rave or make insane gestures?

    Lt. Keith : Well, no, sir.

    Lt. Comdr. Challee : After being relieved, did the captain go violently crazy?

    Lt. Keith : Well, the captain was never crazy either before or after being relieved. There are other forms of mental illness.

    Lt. Comdr. Challee : Thank you for your expert opinion. Are you aware that the captain has been pronounced completely rational by three qualified psychiatrists?

    Lt. Keith : They weren't on the bridge of the Caine during that typhoon, sir.
