The best version by far
If you’ve never seen one of the three major film versions of the famous mutiny-and therefore have no knowledge of the plot-the opening credits of the 1935 film will give you a pretty fair warning of what is about to happen. I’ve seen all three versions, 1935, 1962, and 1984, and this version has quickly become my favorite.
Charles Laughton, the famously strict Captain Bligh, leads a two-year voyage from England to Tahiti to procure breadfruit plants and bring them back. His second-in-command, Fletcher Christian, is played by an un-mustached Clark Gable. At first, Gable supports his captain and tries to get the crew to behave and obey their commanding officer to avoid his horrible punishments. But when Laughton repeatedly brutalizes his men for small or nonexistent infractions, Gable leads a mutiny and takes over the ship.
I know Clark Gable was called “The King”, but he really wasn’t a good actor. Please, nobody throw anything at me, and hear me out. He was very handsome, made girls swoon by taking his shirt off in most of his movies, and had a powerfully confident presence onscreen. But his acting consisted of shouting or smirking, with exception to The Misfits. When you watch Mutiny on the Bounty, it’s as if you’re watching Rhett Butler on a boat. He’s exactly the same.
My criticisms of Clark Gable aside, the rest of the movie is very good! The character of Captain Bligh has to be so much more than just strict and unreasonable. He’s obviously a mass of problems, otherwise he wouldn’t act the way he does, and in Charles Laughton’s interpretation, those problems are written on his brow. He broods, wants to be better than he is, and craves order and respect for deep reasons, and it’s obvious without being melodramatic. But it’s Franchot Tone who steals the show in his performance. He’s the most likable character, and he delivers so much passion into his lines, whether he’s interacting with Tahitians and creating a dictionary, falling in love, or finding a balance between loyalty to his captain and to his friend. I like him anyway, but I’ve never seen him pour so much of himself into a role as in this film.
All three leads were nominated for Best Actor for 1935, and the only nominee who wasn’t in Mutiny on the Bounty took home the gold that year. As for the Hot Toasty Rag Awards of 1935, the film swept Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor for Franchot Tone. This epic was remarkably made in 1935, and it still stands the test of time today.
If you can, keep an eye out for James Cagney, David Niven, and Dick Haymes, as one of the dozens of extras in the film. I never found them, but you can give it a shot. This is very much a man’s movie, but I enjoyed it immensely. The characters and production values kept me riveted even past the end!
One of the most famous naval mutiny!
Mutiny on the Bounty is one sumptuous, serious and very realistic movie. The story is based on a novel, which is based on the true story. The historical accuracy is questionable. I’m not one of those people who believe that film story should blindly follow the facts offense which is inspired. This is one of the reasons why this movie I think one great sea adventure.
Set design, atmosphere, authenticity and acting are top notch. One of the few high-budget films that did not take studio in ruin. In the thirties of the last century it was an amazing success.
I felt American tone in the British environment. It sounds intimidating, but I am of the opinion that the director did it for a reason. In one interesting story covered various topics. I think this is a movie in which everyone can find a segment that he’ll like that. The heart of the story is a constant complication that gets climax as sailor rebellion. In the center of the plot are the two main characters so that the excellent acting contributed to a better effect.
Charles Laughton as Captain Bligh is described as a brutal sadist. In several scenes we witness the brutality: when sailors put in chains or when ordering the flogging a dead man. The man who wants to destroy the human spirit, and at the same time calling for certain disciplinary view. But in one part of the film he shows the qualities great sailor, a spiritual leader, a motivator, a wise and capable captain. The desire for revenge and extreme conditions to change human personality. Laughton had to impose in addition to Gable. I enjoyed a brilliant performance by one of the major villains in the history of cinema. This is worthy of an Oscar.
Clark Gable as Fletcher Christian without his famous mustache is the complete opposite of Captain Bligh. Exemplary and intelligent master’s mate becomes the leader of the rebellion. Just a man who appreciates true values. Gable is perfect in the role.
Franchot Tone (Byam) is a character with which everything begins and ends. I am convinced that the director wanted to induce the audience to perceive the essence of the story from the Byam perspective. I think that at the end of Byam maybe a little exaggerated his role. All in all not bad.
Small roles are also spice up the story. Sam (Herbert Mundin) and Bacchus Dudley Diggins) are my favorite.
A brutal, horrible, bold, exciting, dramatic and romantic story.
This movie, I could not call epic, but certainly excellent.
