Mammoth MUTINY

By lugubriousthespian
Written April 13, 2009
This original MGM warhorse is still the finest of the depictions of the infamous mutiny on the high seas after a tyrannical captain (Charles Laughton in one of his many shining portrayals) goes to far with insidious discipline of his crew on a long, perilous voyage to Tahiti to secure fruit trees for the English crown. Clark Gable plays Fletcher Christian with his typical stalwart capabilities and is supported by just about every other notable character actor of the day. Sterling production values like the Bounty recreations and on-ocean filming overshadow some rather dated film techniques such as rear projections and "special effects" - but for sheer master story-telling prowess, you don't get much better than this classic epic!
