Australia released, PAL/Region 0 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Director Edward Dmytryk returned from a few unhappy years on the Blacklist in the early 1950s, to direct a handful of programmers before being restored to 'A' pictures. Dmytrk's Mutiny is set during the War of 1812. Mark Stevens, captain of the American ship Concord, finds himself at the mercy of mutineer Patric Knowles, who is supposedly loyal to Britain. Actually all Knowles is concerned with is the gold bullion carried by the Concord, which he plans to squander in the company of treacherous femme fatale Angela Lansbury. Stevens recaptures the ship and torpedoes the British fleet, with the aid of a pioneering submarine-like vessel. Mutiny was produced by the estimable King Brothers who allegedly trafficked in illegal gambling devices before hitting upon the more lucrative arena of independent motion pictures.

3.0 out of 5 stars Astounding Angela. 11 July 2012
By justin
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Angela Lansbury gives an astounding performance as a schemeing English Lady out to steal millions in navy gold. Her voice and expressions are exactly like ex prime minister Margaret Thatcher.Sadly, though the sound is clear, picture quality is poor and could use some cleaning up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaing low-budget sea yarn 30 Jan 2007
By Steven Hellerstedt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Mutiny, n. Revolt or rebellion against constituted authority, esp. by sailors against their officers.

Well, that's what MUTINY is about, alright. The War of 1812 has broken out, the British are at the gates of Washington (with their torches) and Captain James Marshall is ordered to run a blockade or two and collect a vitally needed ten millions in gold from the French to aid the war effort. Marshall (Mark Stevens) recruits the out-of-favor Ben Waldridge (Patric Knowles) to act as his first mate. Waldridge is a brilliant commander but a little light of fingers when it comes to other people's money, and was expelled by the British Navy for embezzlement. Anyway, per custom, Waldridge is allowed to pick his own crew, a scabrous host of blackguards and cutthroats whose patriotism lags far behind their lust for, in rough order, grog, gold and girls. The girl is Leslie (Angela Lansbury,) a delicate beauty who is not only Waldridge's distant and unforgettable love (the one article of gear he takes on the mission is her framed portrait,) but, in a happy coincidence, is also living in the same French district where the gold is to be collected. Marshall's plan is to collect the gold as quickly as possible and use it to help defend his country. Waldridge's plan is to take advantage of Marshall's nave and misplaced trust in him and, once the gold and the girl are aboard ship, rally his men to mutiny.

MUTINY isn't a great movie and the dvd-transfer is awful and nearly impossible to watch. It was produced by the b-movie studio King Brothers Productions and, although the ocean scenes are pretty well done, the movie claustrophobically confines itself to a very few sets. And the Stevens character - the good captain - is a little too good to work as a foil for the true star of this film, the conflicted and miserable, in spirit and action, Ben Waldridge. Stevens plays his character as written, the way they used to write FBI agents back then - strait-laced, buttoned-up, and bland as porridge.

Which brings us to director Edward Dmytryk and why some will find MUTINY more than just a ripping sea yarn. Dmytryk was one of the Hollywood 10, "Communist subversives" (note the quotation marks) rounded up by HUAC in a multi-pronged effort to clean up Hollywood. Dmytryk testified before HUAC, spent time in jail for his Communist activities, then later testified - named names - before HUAC. That testimony occurred in 1951. MUTINY (1952) was the first film he made after that testimony was given, and if Dmytryk's memoirs are to be believed, his disgust with and distrust of Communist agents in America was strong. The Communists, I believe Dmytryk believed, had tried to overthrow the constituted authority of the US government. In that context MUTINY acquires another dimension (probably explains why one of the main mutineers is named Redlegs, too, come to think of it), and, if I haven't stretched it too far already, Dmytryk saw a lot of himself in the disgraced, but basically decent, Captain Waldridge.

Although MUTINY is a low-budget action film, the penurious King Brothers had an eye for talent and made some good movies - Dillinger, Gun Crazy - along the way. Besides Dmytryk, the film was scored by Dimitri Tiomkin and photographed by Ernest Laszlo, both Academy Award winners. The dvd-transfer wastes most of it - the images are dark and muddy, the sound could have been cleaned up. Still, if you're in the mood for an old-fashioned sea adventure, this one shouldn't disappoint.

3.0 out of 5 stars Redlegs: "Something's fishy... and I don't mean the finny kind!" 2 Jan 2013
By Annie Van Auken - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Niche market mfrs., such as the several that are linked to this title, offer no commentary, deleted scenes, subtitles or other bonus features. Dubs are "best available source" and can vary from very good to only fair.

MUTINY, director Edward Dmytryk's Technicolor sea adventure set during the War of 1812, suffers greatly from a rushed shooting schedule of only 2 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.

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 IMDb viewer poll rating.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ending features an attack submersible 19 Jan 2013
By C. Andrews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not mentioned in other reviews is the submersible that Cpt. Waldrige has brought on board the Concord at the start of the film, and doesn't reappear until the end as he attempts to redeem himself by saving the ship from capture by the British man'o'war blocking the anchorage.

The design appears to be based on the Rotterdam Boat of 1654, though is reminiscent of the Turtle in it's operation.

This is just an o.k. action movie, so unless you're a fan of that sailing era, not a must have.
