Charles Laughton is at the peak of his form as the malevolent and tyrannical Captain Bligh in this classic Oscar-winning version of Nordhoff and Hall's famous sea saga.
Fletcher Christian and a crew of seamen sign on for what should be a routine voyage to the South Seas. But the traditional hardships and iron discipline of 18th-century sea-faring are compounded by the brutality and sadism of the ship's master, Captain Bligh. On the return voyage, disaffection aboard HMS Bounty explodes into mutiny.
