Mutiny On The Bounty

By reputation, this three-hour 1962 remake of the Charles Laughton-Clark Gable MGM classic (1935) was the first production in which Marlon Brando really ran amok, with various delays causing the budget to skyrocket. Hardly anyone was pleased with the results. Charles Lederer adapted the Charles Nordhoff and James Hall novel about a mutiny on an 18th-century British naval vessal en route to South America; Lewis Milestone directed. With Trevor Howard, Richard Harris, Hugh Griffith, and Tarita. (JR)
