Mutiny on the Bounty (12)

Nominated for 7 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, this Technicolor remake of the 1935 version revisits the HMS Bounty and its journey to Jamaica under the command of cold-hearted Captain William Bligh (Trevor Howard).

Whether you love it or hate it, Marlon Brando’s performance as 1st Lt. Fletcher Christian dominates the film, and its travelogue-style landscape vistas make Mutiny on the Bounty a valuable addition to our festival programme.

Mutiny on the Bounty is the most requested film at Widescreen Weekend. We’re delighted to be bringing this print to the festival, but please be aware it has suffered extreme colour fade.

Introduction

This screening will be introduced by Toni Booth, Associate Curator of Film at the National Science and Media Museum.
