Midshipman Roger Byam joins Captain Bligh and Fletcher Christian aboard HMS Bounty for a voyage to Tahiti. Bligh proves to be a brutal tyrant and, after six pleasant months on Tahiti, Christian leads the crew to mutiny on the homeward voyage. Even though Byam takes no part in the mutiny, he must defend himself against charges that he supported Christian.

Short Review

The visual quality in the scenes of shipboard life -- the billowing sails, the surge of the rollers, the mighty impetus of the vessel's swing -- has in it a tremendous and Infectious verve.
