Retakes! week concludes at Trailers from Hell, with director Brian Trenchard-Smith introducing 1962’s “Mutiny on the Bounty,” the troubled production of MGM’s remake of Frank Lloyd’s 1935 hit, starring Marlon Brando in his prime.
The film’s production is chronicled in detail here, but was recorded too early to encompass
the fate of the studio-built Bounty itself, which after four decades as a
tourist attraction in St. Petersberg Fla. was destroyed by Hurricane
Sandy. TFH Guru John Landis’s take can
be seen here.
