Editorial Reviews

Clark Gable, Charles Laughton, Franchot Tone. This Oscar-winner recounts how demoralized sailors are ultimately led by first mate Fletcher Christian in a mutiny against the evil Captain Bligh on the HMS Bounty. When they set him and his supporters adrift in the Pacific, little do they realize that he'll survive and return to exact vengeance. 1935/b&w/128 min/NR.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's naval, not navels... January 30, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Charles Laughton gives the standout performance in this classic retelling of the Bounty mutiny. Gable appears properly confounded and gives a believable and sympathetic rendering of Fletcher Christian. The movie holds up remarkably well despite some awkward editing and gaps in the story line. Still, at 133 minutes it is a relatively long film but it never drags. In spite of allegations made in other reviews there are no "white girls in blackface" or "boats in a bathtub" scenes. True, navels are concealed but the two female leads are obviously and revealingly topless in several scenes. As for "toy boats in a bathtub" there is only one sequence that obviously utilizes a model and it isn't all that obvious. Laughton is the luminary here and his Bligh stays with you. In fact it has stayed with the culture for sixty-five years. His performance is without fault and repeated watchings bear this out. A couple of sequences bear a closer look: The mutiny montage is startlingly effective and intense. It is a realistic portrayal of sudden violence; short, confusing, and graphic. The Sunday morning prayers on deck sequence is poetic and approaches the sublime. The ship's sails gleam translucent in the sun, the Union Jack floats majestically in the breeze, sunlight reflects brightly on faces as the Captain invokes God's blessings on the voyage. The extreme contrast of light and dark in the black and white print and the metaphorical contrast of good against Bligh, the epitome of evil, is subtle yet effective. It is a beautiful few moments. In every way but gloss this film is superior to the 1962 version. The 1984 "Bounty" with Mel Gibson is a fine film but it fades in the memory. This version lingers in the subconsious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Legendary, Memorable--and Somewhat Problematic February 2, 2005
Format:DVD
Based on the then-popular novel by Charles Nordhoff and James Norman Hall, the 1935 MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY is among a series of legendary films of the 1930s that have been repeatedly celebrated for cinematic achievement. And small wonder: the film has a host of powerful assets.

The single most obvious among these is the star power involved: led by two Oscar-winning stars, the critically formidable Charles Laughton and the incredibly popular Clark Gable, the cast reads like a Who's Who of mid-1930s male actors ranging from leading man Franchot Tone to the memorable character actor Donald Crisp. In a visual sense, the film is also a knockout: filmed on location in a full-size replica of the Bounty, it set a new standard for capturing the sea on film. And the story itself is powerful, the tale of the battle between the cruel and autocratic Bligh and the humane and populist Fletcher Christian. Taken together, it makes for a powerful ride.

Still, some viewers may not find MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY all it is cracked to be. Then as now, Hollywood was less interested in getting the facts right than in telling a good story--and from a factual point of view the film is perhaps twenty percent accurate and eighty percent nothing more nor less than historical tarradiddle. That is no real hinderance per se; after all, we're not watching a documentary. But seen from a modern standpoint the cast now feels somewhat problematic.

Charles Laughton was so critically well regarded that he received star billing over Clark Gable for the film, and seen today his performance is easily the single most powerful in the entire film.

5.0 out of 5 stars What's the fuss about? February 13, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This film doesn't seem to meet the criteria of what we call a great movie: it won't lift your spirit and soul, it doesn't really give us any lasting food for thought, it probably won't make you laugh hysterically( although I thought the swinging lantern bit was pretty funny), it probably won't really make you weep. So why is this such a respected movie?
It is a rolicking adventure of the sea. Everyone knows there were enough of those made in the old days. So why does this one stand out?
It's the acting. The rich man's son is extremely well portrayed and his speech at the end is well rendered. The entire cast is outstanding, making even the nobodys of the ship endearing and enduring. Clark Gable(no mustache?!! Horrors!) gives a deep introspective portrait of Fletcher Christian as a man that has been pushed and pushed and pushed again.
Laughton gives a Bligh that is truly one of the best villians ever to grace the screen. Gable and Laughton play off each other marvelously. As Gable reacts to Laughton's brutality, making the audience wonder what exactly will push him over the edge.
In short, what made this adventure movie so lasting? What made it a classic? I'll tell you. It's the deep introspective character development seen here. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A CLASSIC FROM THE GOLDEN AGE OF AMERICAN FILM March 11, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
This epic naval adventure from 1935 is the jewel in the crown of Louis B. Mayer's MGM from the Thalberg years. Clark Gable is heroic Master's Mate Fletcher Christian and the great Charles Laughton is tyrannical Captain Bligh.

Both actors are at the peak of their considerable screen charisma and dramatic powers.

A Best Picture Oscar© winner for 1935, the lavish production is based on the true historic trilogy as told in the book of the same name by U.S. Army Air Service pilots and writers Charles Nordhoff and James Norman Hall. The film was written and directed by Frank Lloyd on locations as diverse as Tahiti and Catalina.

The story is set in 1787. The 90 foot H.M.S. Bounty sails from Portsmouth for the South Seas in search of Breadfruit trees so slave colonies can have a cheap source of food. Bligh's harsh discipline ordered on his men for minor and perceived infractions finally led to a full mutiny after they land in Tahiti.

Bligh and a few men loyal to him are set loose in the open sea. But Bligh is rescued and Fletcher along with the surviving mutineers fear eventual arrest and take the Bounty and their Tahitian wives and flee to remote, uninhabited Pitcairn Island where they salvage the Bounty, burn the remains and set up life. Their descendents live there to this day; it is a strict, religious, inbred, colony with serious issues of abuse. Sadly, it is not an Edenic paradise.

Some trivia: There's a persistent rumor that producer Thalberg specifically cast Gable and Laughton because he believed they would truly despise one another off and on screen since Laughton was gay and Thalberg assumed Gable was a homophobe.
