"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."

Product Description:

MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY is the classic tale of one of the most infamous adventures on the high seas. The story is based on the fictional accounts written by Charles Nortdhoff and James Norman Hall. English conscripts sailing for Tahiti buckle under the chastisements of cruel Captain William Bligh, savagely portrayed by Charles Laughton. Bligh's grotesque abuses of power, including a brutal flogging that results in the death of the sick old ship's doctor, finally inspire a mutiny on the return voyage, conducted under the leadership of fair-minded officer Fletcher Christian, played by the dashing and heroic Clark Gable. Following the mutiny, Bligh and a few cronies are set onto a small dinghy after the successful muntiy, at which point the real adventure begins--Bligh's 4,000-mile journey from Tahiti to the Dutch East Indies. A solid seagoing adventure epic with breathtaking location photography, MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY offers an unparalleled nautical authenticity--the ship photographed and the costumes worn were exact replicas of the 18th-century originals.

Plot Synopsis:

This is the classic (and true) tale of the mutiny that took place on the HMS Bounty, led by the courageous and dashing Fletcher Christian. The sailors revolt because of the barbaric and merciless way they had been treated during the voyage by the wicked Captain Bligh.

Production Notes:

  • 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.
