You mutinous dog!
on 7 October 2015
Top rate entertainment, a real classic. This film hasn't dated much at all. Charles Laughton is the merciless but able Captain Bligh, who is relentless in his mission to the pacific islands of Tahiti and doesn't hesitate to use the lash on any men who step out of line. Clark Gable as Fletcher Christian, his second in command is dashing, charismatic and fair minded with the crew. Eventually the voyage and Bligh's cruelty lead to a revolt on the ship.
This is the best and most watchable, version of the often filmed events from 1787, although it is semi fictionalized.
