In the Wake of the Bounty (1933)
Romance | Subtitles available
Approximate running time 1hr 35mins
Starring: Katherine Hepburn, Rossano Brazzi

One of the most infamous and daring tales of mutiny at sea, the story of HMS Bounty’s fateful voyage as presented by Charles Chauvel in 1933 is one of exotic adventure, treachery, peril and lasting historical significance. Purchased by the Royal Navy and refitted for service, HMS Bounty embarked on an expedition to acquire breadfruit plants from the Tahiti region. With Commanding Lieutenant William Bligh (Mayne Lynton) at the helm and a hardworking crew ready to serve, the ship set sail and arrived in Tahiti after 10 arduous months at sea. After collecting more than a thousand breadfruit plants, the return journey was less than jovial. Marked with growing frustration and tension between the crew, mutiny soon erupted and the rest became the stuff of legend. In his first ever film performance, screen legend Errol Flynn (Captain Blood) portrays infamous mutineer and man of action, Fletcher Christian.
