Overview

This colorful remake of the 1935 version again concerns the crew and treatment of the HMS Bounty by a cold hearted sadistic captain. Captain Bligh (Trevor Howard) boards the ship in Portsmouth, England, to embark on a mission to bring tropical breadfruit trees to Jamaica. Fletcher Christian (Marlon Brando) is the aristocratic second mate who welcomes the new captain aboard. Christian's view of the captain sours with the cruel treatment of the crew and the dangerous decision to round Cape Horn. The Bounty sails into the teeth of a ferocious winter storm which is another in a long line of indignities suffered on the journey. John Mills (Richard Harris) is punished for stealing cheese. A sailor is ordered to stay aloft in the crow's nest, nearly resulting in death. The crew finds temporary paradise in Tahiti before Bligh's behavior becomes intolerable for the once faithful Christian. The crew revolts and sends the captain on his way in a small rowboat. Settling on Pitcairn Island, the crew soon realizes they may never see England again. Mills burns the ship to insure the trip is never made. Christian attempts to save the only means of transportation of their new island home. Lewis Milestone directed the film which was plagued by constant cost overruns to the tune of 18 million dollars. Brando's legendary ego clashed with results as turbulent as the fictitious trip around stormy Cape Horn. The movie retained slightly over half the cost of the production price tag in its initial release.

    Still the outstanding version , although all three are worthy of admiration. Brando is FAR from miscast, and Trevor Howard is duly frightening as Bligh, as well he should be (though Hopkins' version is as good). The music, especially that which accompanies the movement of the final shot from Fletcher's tragic position to his dying ship, is extraordinarily moving.

    This movie has so many exceptional features, but many are overlooked by the questionable casting. Top of the list is the amazing score by Bronislau Kaper. I've conducted a pops symphony for over twenty years and we are performing music from the film on our upcoming concert. It is nothing short of incredible! Additionally, the cinematography is wonderful. The replica "Bounty" is beautiful. If only folks could look beyond the two lead characters. The Tahitians are spectacular. The rest of the crew is finely cast.

    Some have said that this score is the finest soundtrack ever written. I could be easily convinced of that.
