Movie Info

Errol Flynn made his screen debut in this Australian feature which blends drama with documentary as it explores the infamous story of the H.M.S. Bounty. Staged sequences re-enact the final voyage of the Bounty as angry sailors, led by Fletcher Christian (Flynn), rise up against brutal Captain Bligh (Mayne Lynton), expelling the captain from the ship and eventually settling on Pitcairn Island, near Tahiti. In addition, documentary footage visits Pitcairn Island in 1933, offering a look at the place where Christian and his men took shelter and visiting with several islanders who are descendants of the Bounty's crew members.

Unintentionally hilarious vintage Australian flick.

Audience Reviews for In the Wake of the Bounty


Of interest strictly as Errol Flynn's screen bow. He's obviously uncomfortable still in front of the lens and saddled with a dreadful wig. Is role is small and the rest of the film is a travelogue of Pitcairn Island.
