1787. HMS Bounty sets out on a journey that will take it through perilous seas to a tropical paradise...and into history as one of the most ill-fated vessels ever to sail for King and country. Marlon Brando plays first officer Fletcher Christian as a dandy transformed into a man of action. Trevor Howard is Capt. Bligh, uncompromising in his command or his cruelty. Fear is the best weapon, Bligh proclaims. But it's also the most costly, driving men to desperation and mutiny. Richard Harris, Hugh Griffith and Richard Haydn also star in this epic adventure.
