Product Description

CD Description

Undoubtedly the best known of the numerous film adaptations of the story of the mutiny aboard The Bounty, the 1962 film starring Trevor Howard and Richard Harris is also one of the most historically inaccurate! Despite this the film has attained almost legendary status, thanks in considerable part to the musical score by Bronislaw Kaper and the Oscar nominated song Love Song.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic score from the Golden Age 12 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
Bronislau Kaper may not be a household name, although he did pen a famous tune, Hi Lilli, Hi Lilli, Hi Lo, from a forgotten film, starring Mel Ferrer and Lesley Caron, but he did write some epic music from The Golden Age of Hollywood, including LORD JIM and this one, MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY, about the most famous mutiny of them all.

This is film music on the grandest scale, from its bombastic, rousing openings bars, through its thrilling native music, to its unexpectedly low-key ending. The movie itself itself is still extremely watchable, notwithstanding Marlon Brando's rather odd English accent, which takes a bit of getting used to, but star power wins out in the end. The film is also very well cast, right down to the smallest parts and there isn't one boring minute in its entire three hours running time. Quite a feat, when you look at today's long-running epics. Pure escapism at its very best, with a super score as an added bonus. They don't make 'em like this anymore!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best high-seas adventure story ever made 23 April 2013
Verified Purchase
Do your research and you will discover the music from this film is the best ever written by Bronislau Kaper. The music captures
all areas of the story even down to the traditional singing and dancing from the South Pacific islands. However, the best piece
for me is the track "Leaving Harbour". The music is rousing and stirring and so powerful in depicting "The Bounty" setting sail
that Bronislau Kaper very cleverly mixes in "Rule Britannia" which, even now, leaves me with goose-bumps ! The acting, drama
and the build up of tension in the film is terrific and if you add the beautiful cinematography and some of the best Technicolor
ever processed, then this is again one of the Hollywood greats. Oh yes, "The Bounty" is a real ship built for the film - no CGI here !

4.0 out of 5 stars High Seas Drama 14 April 2013
By Rosebud
Verified Purchase
I've been keen to have the CD release ever since the original long playing record at the time of the film's release, and it doesn't disappoint, with the dramatic and the sensitive music appropriate to the scenes in the film, rather than a constant "theme".
The disappointment for me is the out-of-sequence of the musical items compared to the running order of the film, for example, the mutiny coming before the arrival in Tahiti, but still a good recording

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Filmscore for a great price! 16 Oct 2012
By Christopher Cline - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Firstly, I LOVE this filmscore by Bronislau Kaper! I grew up listening to it being played by my Father on his phonograph player. This has the exact tracks and in the exact order which were on the LP Record. I had actually dubbed my father's record to MP3 several years ago and so had been listening to it in its scratched and slightly warped condition. This CD, released in 2012, is basically THAT LP in its pristine form straight from the Record Store. The quality of the transfer is about the same as a brand new record without any pops, hisses or scratches. It maintains the slightly "muffled" sound of the original LP recording, which is kind of strange and makes me wonder if the master recordings had that same sound. I have never heard the $40 Multi-Disc re-issue produced by Intrada a few years ago, but I wonder if it TOO has that "muffled" sound to it. So, if you are an "Audiophile" and demand the best sound quality in the world, THIS CD version probably isn't for you. That being said, if you are a fan of this wonderful Filmscore for the 1965 film and you don't mind hearing it as it would have been heard emanating from a perfect record played by a perfect needle, then this is a GREAT addition to your CD collection and the price is right as well! I recommend this product without hesitation! Even though the sound quality should probably be higher in this day and age, I still rate the CD 5 Stars!
5.0 out of 5 stars One of Brando's great movies with a spectacular score 4 Jan 2014
By Diamond Dave - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
i am a great fan of the movie soundtracks of the 50's and 60's. After seeing this film, I purchased the 33-1/3 album. The opening theme is both powerful and conveys the feeling of a large masted sailing ship casting off for adventure. Part of the job of the many great composers during that period was to set the mood for the scenes. Most of what they composed still is beautiful and emotional.
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Score! 10 Oct 2013

I love this top notch score by Bronislaw Kaper.....you don't need to have seen the film to appreciate it. There's the lush sound of the tropics combined with the majesty and drama of the sea. A must have!
