Nominated for seven Academy Awards® in 1954, including Best Picture and Best Actor, THE CAINE MUTINY is a classic film about the unstable Captain Queeg (Humphrey Bogart) and his tumultuous command of an old minesweeper and her weary crew. On the high seas during the dramatic battles of World War II, Queeg’s by-the-book approach pushes his crew and his popular second-in-command, Lt. Maryk (Van Johnson), to the breaking point. After a series of questionable orders, Maryk confronts Queeg when he orders the ship directly into the path of a deadly typhoon. Maryk invokes naval code and relieves Queeg of his command, forcing the crew to mutiny. Once safely back in port, Maryk is court-martialed for treason, setting off a tense trial that exposes the true state of Queeg’s mind. Nominated for Best Actor, Humphrey Bogart gives a searing performance as he is systematically broken down in this classic tale of military conduct in a time of war.

appreciate the complexity of the story. I fully sided with the decision to remove the
Captain from his post.
But when I watched it again recently I realized for the first time that this movie is not
so one sided and "obvious" in what I, at first viewing, thought.
The acting is very very good. Bogart is at his finest and the supporting cast is very
good at showing the differences of opinion. Look closely for the plaque on the
wall in one of the scenes. It is a key to understanding the tremendous mental stress
and pressure that Captains are under when German U-Boats are all around.
I only have one qualm about this DVD edition - I really wish there'd been some commentary included. Hopefully some day in the future this may come into being.
