5.0 out of 5 stars The best high-seas adventure story ever made, 23 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mutiny On The Bounty (Audio CD)
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
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mutiny On The Bounty (Audio CD)
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

Kaper is not recognised enough. He wrote many film scores whose melodies are familiar to us, including Lilli & Green Dolphin Street. But this one, Mutiny, is a real gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic score from the Golden Age, 12 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mutiny On The Bounty (Audio CD)
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!
