About this movie

Based on the novel, 'Captain Bligh and Mr. Christian,' this is the story of a 1789 mutiny aboard the H.M.S. Bounty. This voyage to Tahiti for breadfruit begins well, but encounters difficulty when the Captain attempts to navigate around the perilous Cape Horn. After a dangerous struggle, the Captain admits defeat and reroutes his vessel. They arrive in Tahiti and find a tropical paradise, but the men soon become lazy and insubordinate. When the Captain announces that they will attempt to sail around the Horn again, the men rise to mutiny and send the captain and his loyal officers out to sea in a small open boat.

I purchased this movie for my collection, but now I can't view it because they now want me to purchase it again at a higher price. Thieves

This film demonstrates the depth of the characters by the actors in a way that is very rare in today's movies. I think it's amazing.
