Mutiny on the Bounty

1962

Lewis Milestone
Director

Captain Bligh, determined to make a name for himself, pushes his ship and crew to the point of mutiny on an expedition to Tahita to secure Bread fruit.

A deeply flawed film, but the experience of watching it really gives no indication of the madness that went on behind the scenes. Enjoy it for the gorgeous 2.76:1 Technicolor beauty it is.

The film features a fully functional replica of the original ship which survived the movie only to succumb to hurricane Sandy on 29 October 2012, taking with it Claudene Christian, a descendent of the original mutineer.

Thomas Hayward is played by Alan Callow (I have the costume test photo to prove it!)
