"Clark Gable is excellent..."
"Clark Gable gives a yeomanlike performance....It's Charles Laughton's dead-on portrayal of the ruthless Captain Bligh that lingers on."
Description by OLDIES.com:
Solidifying his status as Hollywood's #1 male star, Clark Gable is first officer Fletcher Christian, whose will to obey erodes under Bligh's tyranny. And Franchot Tone plays idealistic midshipman Byam, torn by his allegiance to both. That all three portrayals are vividly memorable is accented by the fact that for the only time in Oscar history, three stars from the same film were Best Actor nominees.
- Three of the films actors (Clark Gable, Charles Laughton, and Franchot Tone) were all nominated for Academy Award.
- MUTNITY ON THE BOUNTY was the second picture directed by Frank Lloyd to win an Oscar for Best Picture; CAVALCADE was the first.
- The budget was close to two million dollars (quite large for the time), much of which was spent shooting background footage in Tahiti and building a historically accurate replica of the HMS Bounty.
- Gable had doubts about taking the role--he was concerned about his ability to manage an English accent and thought he would look silly wearing a pigtail.
- MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY is number 86 on the American Film Institute's list of America's 100 Greatest Movies.
