Mutiny on the Bounty is the true story of the falling out between Fletcher Christian and Captain Bligh, a falling out with disasterous results that resulted in many men fleeing England and many other without heads. Frank Lloyd's 1935 epic was the third rendition for the big screen and was produced by MGM for a whopping record-breaking $2 million.
A testament to the production values of one of Hollywood's golden ages, Mutiny on the Bounty went on to win an Academy Award for Best Picture, and was nominated for seven others: Clark Gable, Charles Laughton, and Franchot Tone were all nominated for Best Actor, and the picture was also nominted for Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Music, and Best Film Editing.
