I liked this DVD. I recommend this movie to adults only. It has violence. It demonstrates how abusive humans can be to each other. It has a moral story to treat everyone with respect and compassion. I like the 1930 version with Clark Gable instead of the 1960 version with Marlon Brando. 1930 version explained better what abuse took place. It presents it better emotionally. CG was more emotional in his presentation. MB was distant and uncommunicative verbally and non-verbally. 1960 version speculated (guessed) before and after the event a little more thank the 1930 version. But, I recommend both movies.

Although there are two versions of Mutiny on the Bounty, for my money Charles Laughton and Clark Gable get the nod. The true story of the 1789 voyage of the HMS Bounty under the cruel Captain William Bligh. Laughton is perfect in the role as the stern captain and Clark Gable ably plays first mate Fletcher Christian.
P.PAlthough in black and white, it has the terrific cast to carry the movie. You should really enjoy this one! PS The features icon on the DVD gives 2 great pieces of film. One is a short documentary on Fletcher Christian after he took over the Bounty and took his small crew to a nearby island. It also has a two minute feature that is from the 1939 Academy Awards. I won't spoil it for you with more information, but believe me, this is a great package!

The only film in Oscar history that had three nominees for Best Actor: Clark Gable, Charles Laughton, and Franchot Tone (none won). Because of this, the the Best Supporting Actor category was introduced so this situation would not happen again. Personally, I would've picked Laughton. He was the epitome of the sadistic flog-happy Captain Bligh. Great classic. Huge production value. FIVE STARS.
