Mutiny on the Bounty Blu-Ray Book Review

Mutiny on the Bounty Blu-Ray Book Review

Synopsis: HMS Bounty sails for Tahiti by way of Cape Horn, and into movie lore. Grandly filmed, Mutiny on the Bounty captured the 1935 Best Picture Academy Award and eight nominations total.  Charles Laughton portrays Captain Bligh, a seafaring monster ruling with the law of fear. Clark Gable is first officer Fletcher Christian, whose will to obey erodes under Bligh's tyranny. And Franchot Tone plays idealistic midshipman Byam, torn by his allegiance to both. That all three portrayals are vividly memorable is accented by the fact that for the only time in Oscar history, three stars from the same film were Best Actor nominees.

Review: Mutiny on the Bounty is a 1935 cinematic masterpiece starring the amazing and renound Clark Gable as Fletcher Christian, first mate on a ship that has a cruel and selfish captain, Captain Bligh, played by Charles Laughton.

The film comes to a head when Christian becomes fed up with Bligh and stages a mutiny.  This classic film is on blu-ray for the first time with a collectible blu-ray book packaging.  The high-definition transfer looks wonderful on this classic!  The image is a bit soft, but looks wonderful considering the age.  This new collectible packaging and transfer are the absolute finest ways to enjoy this movie.

The special features on this blu-ray book set include: Vintage featurette: Pitcairn Island Today, Academy Awards newsreel and Theatrical trailers of this and the 1962 version

Interest Range: Classic Film
