4.0 out of 5 stars Re:Mutiny on the Bounty (1935), 25 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mutiny on the Bounty [ 1935 ] with extra's (DVD)
Even if this is an 80 year old production, it is remarkably well done: as to content, I think it's more interesting that the later 1962 film with Marlon Brando and Trevor Howard, despite the technical superiority of the latter. The sound is pretty good thanks to the excellent diction of the actors. The lt. Bligh portayal of Charles Laughton is even more unsympathetic than Howard's but on the other hand the older film makes clear the stamina of the man and his ability in adversity : in fairness it should be added that this is entirely due to the producer's approach: in the 1962 film we are only shown a description of the journey back from Bligh's notes, while in the older film we see the day-to-day fight for survival of the castaways. Marlon Brando's Christian is a more compex portayal than Clark Gable's, the latter being the more idealistic character. Worth seeing.
