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.
The film was MGM's most expensive production at the time, costing around $2 million.
Captain William Bligh:
What's your name?
Seaman Thomas Ellison: Thomas Ellison, sir. Pressed into service. I've got a wife, a baby!
Captain William Bligh: I asked your name, not the history of your misfortunes.
During the takeover, loyal crewmen are being shown bayoneted or struck with rifle butts by the mutineers. In fact, the Bounty was taken bloodlessly and Bligh was the only one to physically put up resistance.
