Not Rated | | Adventure, Biography, Drama
A tyrannical ship captain decides to exact revenge on his abused crew after they form a mutiny against him, but the sailor he targets had no hand in it.
Clark Gable had to shave off his trademark mustache for this film for historical accuracy. Mustaches were not allowed in the Royal Navy during the time the story takes place.
Captain William Bligh:
Mr. Byam, if you were loyal when Christian escaped, l would have found you DEAD!
Bligh was never aboard the HMS Pandora, and did not attend the mutineers' trial. He was half a world away at the time of the trial, being on a second breadfruit expedition.
Also available in a computer colorized version.
