Mutiny on the Bounty (1935) (DVD)


The highlight of Mutiny on the Bounty is undoubtedly Charles Laughton's bracingly evil performance as Captain Bligh, a man so mean that he insists on having a dead sailor flogged. Bligh pushes his men beyond physical endurance, slashes their rations for his own profit, and drastically cuts down their frolicking time with scantily clad Tahitians. Finally, the moment everyone has been waiting for arrives: first mate Fletcher Christian (Clark Gable) hits his limit and all hell breaks loose. Gable holds doggedly onto his American accent through the entire movie, but in a way it makes Christian come off as a Regular Guy in opposition to Bligh's institutionalized cruelty. Once you get past the hurdle of his diphthongs, Gable makes an excellent Fletcher Christian--strong, fair, and noble, and he effectively conveys the struggle of a man who loathes the idea of mutiny but can't stand see his men mistreated. And Charles Laughton is just superb. His Bligh is thoroughly appalling, yes, but it's far from a one-note performance--when he is cast adrift on the open sea in a lifeboat and tries to make an impossible journey to land, you can't help but root for him. Mutiny on the Bounty won the 1935 Academy Award for Best Picture and picked up a Leading Actor nomination for each of its male leads. Check it out or be tied to the mizzenmast. --Ali Davis

OK, while miles ahead of the 1960s remake, ruined by an over-the-top performance by a very miscast Marlon Brando, this version still does not tell the true story of the HMS Bounty and its ill-fated voyage. (See James A. Michener's "Rascals in Paradise" for a historically accurate, but brief, picture of Bligh and the mutiny.) The movie stays close to the novel by Hall & Nordhoff and uses a fictious midshipman, Roger Byam, as the main character and we see both Christian and Bligh mostly through his eyes.
The acting by Gable and Laughton are, of course, excellent and the film shows the money spent by M-G-M wasn't wasted. The Bounty, itself, was a beautiful replica and the filming at sea--especially during storms--is hair-raising. In short, if you are after historically accurate drama--then this isn't your film, but if you want an entertaining, thrilling sea adventure from Hollywood's golden age--then by all means take a chance with this great picture.

"Mutiny On The Bounty" is a classic sea epic about the crew of a British tall ship who revolt after their captain (Charles Laughton) becomes tyrannical on the high seas. Clark Gable cuts a handsome swashbuckling figure as Fletcher Christian - king of the mutineers. His ability to insight revolt leads to a disastrous outcome for all concerned. Franchot Tone give a poignant performance as one of the wronged sea men, put on trial but eventually exonerated from the charge of mutiny. For adventure on the high seas there's none to touch this harrowing classic!
Warner Brothers' transfer is a mixed blessing. Though much of the footage shot on indoor stages seems to have held up well over time the exterior and location photography is riddled with age related artifacts, slightly out of focus image quality and glaring film grain, dirt and grit. The gray scale sometimes has a well balanced look to it. At other times it appears to be suffering from low contrast levels. Blacks are never solid or deep. There are no digital anomalies. Fine details are never realized. The audio is mono but very nicely cleaned up. Extras include a couple of featurettes and a trailer. Ho-hum...the pirates life for me!

You'll noticed most of the early Oscar winners were films that were heavy-handed. They appeared as if they wanted to be seen as important. Watch "Wings", "All Quite On The Western Front", "Cimarron", "The Life of Emile Zola", and director Frank Lloyd's other Oscar winner "Cavalcade". All of these films seem as if they are shoving an important message down our throats, mind you, not that they are bad films, well, maybe except for "Cimarron". But, "Mutiny on the Bounty" is actually one of the few films to have won the Oscar that didn't appear as "important" as the others. It appears as if it merely wants to entertain. Other films that belong on that list are "The Broadway Melody of 1929", and two Frank Capra films "It Happened One Night" & "You Can't Take It With You". And that's it.

"Mutiny on the Bounty" when released was one of the most expensive films ever made, I believe somewhere between 2-4 million. But watch the wonderful detail given to the film. There are lavish production and costume designs. So, if you like that sort of thing, keep your eyes open.
Now, I've noticed that some people bash the movie because they feel it doesn't create an accurate description of what really happened. My answer to this is, who cares? Lets judge the movie on cinematic terms not historical. As a movie does it entertain? Yes. Is there good acting? Yes. You have three Oscar nominated performances here, Charles Laughton, to me comes out looking the best. Clark Gable gives one of his best, though, I admit I never really thought of him as a "great" actor. He was fine for certain roles but I never felt he had a wide range.

Warner Brothers Entertainment Inc and Turner Entertainment Co. have cooperatively restored and remastered Hollywood's Golden Age Movie Classics and released them under Warner Home Video Inc DVD label. These classics are meticulously restored both picture and sound. The results are an amazing Home Theatre experience. The quality is even better than the original 1935 theatrical presentation.
"Mutiny On The Bounty" was 1935 BEST PICTURE Oscar Winner. (Also voted into AFI's (American Film Institutes) Top 100 Movies in 100 Years (circa 1998)) Starring Charles Laughton as the infamous Captain Bligh and Clark Gable as 1st Officer Fletcher Christian. This Standard Format Black/White feature was quite a lengthy picture for the 1930's ( 132 minutes ). But the story moved by very quickly covering several years ar sea. From Portsmouth England to Tahiti / Pitcairn Island & back twice for Bligh.
The year was 1787 when English seaman were shanghied and made to serve on his magesty's ships for years. Average common men drafted and taken from their families unwillingly. This story "Mutiny on the Bounty" is based on true incident which changed the Rules of Seamanship forever. Due to Captain Bligh's blatant disregard of human rights and cruel inhuman punishment for any questioning of his unreasonable orders. He was a common man who through pain & suffering climbed to the rank of Lieutantant. Hating Christian for his being a refined gentleman and well educated officer. This story vividly shows us the world of the seaman via 1787 and how an unspeakable "MUTINY" results. An outstanding movie and the players are well casted for their roles!!
Extra features include; Vintage documentary - "Pitcairn Island Today" (circa 1935), Academy Award Newsreel and Theartical Trailers (1935 & remake with Marlon Brando 1962).
This is a must have DVD for your Home Theatre library. Enjoy
