MUTINY, director Edward Dmytryk's Technicolor sea adventure set during the War of 1812, suffers greatly from a rushed shooting schedule of only 2½ weeks. This UNITED ARTISTS distributed costume drama (which long ago fell into the public domain) is notable for a fine villainess in Miss Lansbury and for a subcast of well-known uncrediteds. The score is by Dimitri Tiomkin.
Cinematographer is Ernest Laszlo. His long and distinguished Hollywood resumé includes WINGS (silent-1927), D.O.A. (1950), STALAG 17 (1953), HOUDINI (1953), INHERIT THE WIND (1960), JUDGMENT AT NUREMBERG (1961), IT'S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD (1963), FANTASTIC VOYAGE (1966), AIRPORT (1970), LOGAN'S RUN (1976) and many others.
In this colorful costumer that even includes a sailor with a hook, Stevens portrays the captain of a blockade runner who recruits Knowles as 1st mate. Lansbury is the mate's avaricious ex-girlfriend. Events get explosive when the duplicitous mate's buddies (and his ex) learn they're transporting a fortune in gold "unofficially" borrowed from the French.
