Mutiny on the Pilgrim
By several respects ,some kind of updated “Captain courageous” (Victor Fleming ,1937).The rich kid (Alan Ladd) has grown up and he is still frivolous ,part of the young jet set ,drinking and picking up girls in the low dives of the harbor.When dad learns that his boy is on his own ship,in the clutch of a -rather sadistic- captain ,he does not panic and wisely mumbles something like ” it ‘ll make a man of him” ;which is not entirely false.Not only ,the boy born silver spoon in hand will learn the harsh realities of life ,but he’ll also feel for his unfortunate shipmates (many of them poor press-ganged aboard victims like himself ).
Although the movie is centered on Ladd’s misadventures ,it actually depicts “Henry Dana’s crusade to expose mistreatment of men at sea” (Maltin).But the reviewer is wrong when he writes that it is a “badly scripted story”:in fact only the female character gets in the way and the ending is botched.All that remains is absorbing ,the standout being for me the ship’s boy.Farrow was better at film noir ,but his attempt at an adventures movies is recommendable.
Like this ? try these ….
“Mutiny on the Bounty” (Frank Lloyd’s 1935 version is still the best) “Captain Courageous” (Fleming,1937) “Down to the sea in ships” (Henry Hathaway,1949) “Ghost Ship” (Mark Robson/Val Lewton,1943) “White squall” (Ridley Scott,1996)
Pretty good “Bounty” ripoff
Ah, another “I wasn’t in Mutiny on the Bounty” movie: Two Years Before the Mast. As countless tough guy actors got their chance to play a Captain Bligh ripoff, tons of leading man actors got their chance to play a Fletcher Christian ripoff. If you want to see a perpetually shirtless Alan Ladd in the Fletcher Christian part, and Howard Da Silva in the Captain Bligh part, rent this one.
Alan is young and inexperienced, and while in a tavern, he gets knocked over the head and kidnapped to work as a crewmember on an imposing ship. Back in the 1800s, things like that did happen, and it was pretty scary. Especially since the reason the sailors needed to kidnap their crew was because their captain was so tyrannical, no one in his right mind would volunteer.
As evil as Howard Da Silva is, Alan does have one friend aboard the ship: Brian Donlevy. Ironically, if you want to see Brian as a tough captain, check out the following year’s The Song of Scheherazade. Brian is sympathetic and keeps a diary of all the atrocities committed aboard the ship. William Bendix is the first mate, torn between his loyalty to his captain and the horrors he sees. Roman Bohnen, Barry Fitzgerald, Ray Collins, and Darryl Hickman can also be seen in the supporting cast. Although you can tell the quality isn’t A-tier, this one is still entertaining, so you can check it out if you’re an Alan Ladd fan.
