William Henry "Bully" Hayes (1829-77) was a South Seas pirate born in Cleveland, OH. He ran trading missions throughout the South Pacific (including the Marshall Islands, Cook Islands, New Zealand, Australia), specializing in rum and rifles, but he was not averse to "blackbirding" (slaving). He was killed after a violent disagreement and his body was thrown into the ocean. His murderer was never brought to justice.
Capt. David O'Keefe:
I don't understand. You offer them a fortune for a few coconuts, and they refuse to work. Yet they go out and kill themselves for six pieces of stone. I give up.
Alfred Tetins: I thought you would... *I* did twenty years ago.
When O'Keefe's mutinous crew throws him overboard at the beginning, he climbs into the lifeboat being towed by his ship. A crewman is then shown cutting the tow line, but when the camera cuts back to O'Keefe in the boat, the line is still taut and leading up to the ship. Only later is the severed line shown floating slack in the water.
