Mutiny On The Bounty (1935)
Once a classic always a classic. However, in case of this movie it is a role which is truly a classic. Not often do you see Clark Gable's enormous on-screen persona dwindling--it did here in the blinding light of ruthless Captain Bligh's magnificent role-play!

You feel raging hatred for the cruel Ship captain like never before and that's what gives Captain Bligh his immortality as an actor.

His HMS Bounty in on board for a voyage to Tahiti. Bligh proves to be a tyrant leader--somewhat greedy and corrupt but nonetheless courageous. After six pleasant months on Tahiti, Christian leads the crew to mutiny on the homeward voyage. Byam takes no part in the mutiny, and when captured, defends himself against charges that he supported Christian. Also, he brings forth the tyranny/reality of Cpt. Bligh to the world.

This particular incident highly impacted the Captain-Crew relations throughout England for better. By the decree of the then English Queen, harmony and respect overtook the previously meted out slave-like treatment aboard a ship.

A super movie!
