We gave it an A

The cover crows ”remastered,” but parts of Mutiny on the Bounty‘s original negative are so weather-beaten there’s just no scraping off all the barnacles. Night scenes tend to turn especially rough and grainy. Still, most of the battles between Gable’s he-man Mr. Christian and Laughton’s pudgy-lipped Captain Bligh look sharpened. After the movie, one short shows Hollywood stars frisking about in Bounty‘s Catalina locations, and another tells the harsh fate of the real-life Bounty‘s mutineers. Now that‘s making an already first-class vessel a true luxury liner. A
