There's nothing to stand in the way of Mutiny qualifying for box office dynamite rating.

The story is spellbinding, the acting lusty and the spectacle everything you could expect from a Golden Age MGM production -- though sometimes it's a bit too much on the monumental side.

It's tainted by a fair amount of middlebrow stuffiness, but it's a fleet piece of storytelling and serves to enshrine one of the great ham performances of all time, Charles Laughton's Captain Bligh.

Its theme of rebellion against that which binds us resonates today. Mutiny on the Bounty is well acted and well scripted.

The first and best of the three versions of the famous mutiny is a big budget production, a stirring sea adventure praised at the time for its narrative pull, great acting of the three leads, and exotic locales.

An exotic and gripping piece of Hollywood mythology, made with all the technical skill and gloss one associates with Irving Thalberg's MGM.

It may not be history, but with Laughton out of control and Gable as the hero, who cares?

Historically accurate or not, the movie works as a seagoing adventure; and the performances by [Clark] Gable and Charles Laughton are terrific.

An exciting, perfectly executed production that features Gable at his most magnetic and Laughton at his most commanding.

Gable makes a great Fletcher Christian, in his last movie without a mustache. The emotions which cross his face as Bligh commits one indignity after another upon various crew members is great 1930s dramatic acting.

| Original Score: 4/5

July 28, 2003


Epic stuff, beautifully cast, handsomely mounted and directed with passionate conviction.
