Il 28 aprile 1789 a bordo dell'HMS Bounty diretto a Tahiti scoppia la rivolta contro il tirannico cap. Bligh che con pochi fedeli marinai è lasciato su una scialuppa. Il primo ufficiale guida gli ammutinati sull'isola di Pitcairn. Già rievocato in un bel film del 1935, da noi pomposamente intitolato La tragedia del Bounty , l'episodio è storico. Questo remake, cui ne seguì un altro ( Bounty , 1984), rischiò di far fallire la M-G-M: costò 18 milioni di dollari e ne incassò 9. Il finale è uno dei 12 escogitati in sceneggiatura, più volte rimaneggiata anche per colpa di Brando, che all'inizio della lavorazione impose la sostituzione di Carol Reed con Milestone. A parte la recitazione di Brando, di cui però nel doppiaggio si perde gran parte del sapore british, il film ha qualche buon momento spettacolare, ma diventa oleografico e sfibrato nella parte di Pitcairn, proprio quella che stava a cuore al suo protagonista. Nonostante tutto, ebbe 7 nomination agli Oscar tra cui quelle per la fotografia (Robert Surtees) e la musica (Bronislau Kaper). (fonte: Morandini)

(Mutiny on the Bounty, Usa 1962, col, 179') Lewis Milestone. Con Marlon Brando, Trevor Howard, Richard Harris, Hugh Griffith, Richard Haydn, Tim Seely, Tarita, Percy Herbert. * Uno degli episodi più famosi e drammatici dell'epopea marinara britannica: il 28 aprile 1789 l'equipaggio del cascello inglese Bounty, in rotta nei mari del Sud, si ribella alle condizioni di vita bestiali alle quali è sottomesso, destituisce il capitano crudele e dispotico (Howard) e guidato dal primo ufficiale (Brando) si rifugia sull'isola di Pitcairn che però si rivelerà non essere il paradiso terrestre che tutti immaginavano.

Christian: It’s alright, Mills. It wasn’t your fault. Bligh left his mark on all of us.

Hollywood has never been a sane place (sometimes to a great effect and lasting value), but it seems that in the early 1960s it was especially insane. Where did they get the money, not to mention the time and the energy, for all those full-colour, three-hour, no-expense-spared epics, I wonder? No wonder some of them turned out somewhat unsatisfactory.

Considering all the rumours about delays on the set and tensions in the star trio (Richard Harris received a star billing thanks to his Irish cheek), this movie is surprisingly good. The Bligh-Christian collision, which is of course the crux of the story, is extensively worked out and nicely set against what almost certainly was the other chief reason for the mutiny, “the allurements of dissipation” in Bligh’s own words. But the writing is uneven and so is the acting. Christian is a campy, foppish and sarcastic dandy, in the end abruptly transformed into a tragic hero. Brando seems bored with the character, a flaw that would have been fatal with a better script and a less charismatic actor. Bligh is the usual mixture of ambition and sadism, but subtler and more complex than the one Laughton had to deal with in 1935. Howard is excellent throughout, resorting to no histrionics yet almost acting Brando off the deck in their joint scenes. Too bad Bligh’s epic voyage of survival is completely cut. As for Harris and the fine supporting cast, they feel rather superfluous.

If the movie feels slow and lacklustre now and then, you can always enjoy the lavish spectacle. The visual side remains spectacular even today. Many far younger movies look far worse than this one. Neither the Bounty nor Tahiti has ever looked better on the screen, not even in the 1984 version. And Tarita is a dish, of course; can’t blame Brando there; I would have married her too. On the whole, however, this is the weakest of three great Bounty movies, not because it plays fast and loose with the few historical facts, but because it substitutes talkiness and ostentation for them.
