The Bounty Mutiny

From the Court Case to the Movie

Series: Famous Court Cases That Became Movies

By Edward Willett

The BOUNTY was a British ship visiting Tahiti in 1789 when some of the crew overthrew the captain, William Bligh, and set him adrift in a tiny boat with sailors loyal to him. The mutiny resulted in a number of trials—both of men who mutinied and of Bligh for losing command of the ship. These fascinating events have been the source for numerous Hollywood movies, most recently THE BOUNTY starring Mel Gibson. Author Edward Willett looks at the famous case and the movies it inspired. Illustrated with paintings from the period and movie stills.
