In 1787, the HMS Bounty set out on a journey that took it through perilous seas to a tropical paradise.... and into history as one of the most ill-fated vessels ever to sail for King and country. Lewis Milestone (All Quiet on the Western Front) directed this color-drenched spectacular nominated for seven Academy Awards, including "Best Picture." Filmed before in 1935 and again in 1984’s The Bounty, the gripping tale, based on a true story, centers on two men. Marlon Brando puts his own stamp on the role of first officer Fletcher Christian, the tormented first mate transformed into a man of action. Trevor Howard is Capt. William Bligh, uncompromising in his command and his cruelty. “Fear is [my] best weapon,” Bligh proclaims. But it’s also the most costly, driving men to desperation....and to mutiny. Richard Harris, Hugh Griffith and Richard Haydn also star in this epic adventure.
