Clark Gable in Mutiny on the Bounty, 1935 - Fletcher Christian successfully leads a revolt against the ruthless Captain Bligh on the HMS Bounty. However, Bligh returns one year later, hell bent on avenging his captors.
Mutiny on the Bounty is a 1935 film starring Charles Laughton and Clark Gable, and directed by Frank Lloyd based on the Charles Nordhoff and James Norman Hall novel Mutiny on the Bounty. The film was one of the biggest hits of its time. Although its historical accuracy has been questioned (inevitable as it is based on a novel about the facts, not the facts themselves), film critics consider this adaptation to be the best cinematic work inspired by the mutiny.
while shooting Mutiny on the Bounty he met and married Tahitian beauty Tarita Teriipia, who by coincidence had played his love interest in the film. Tarita was some 18 years younger than Brando, and she was only 20 when she and Marlon Brando were married. Tarita was Brando’s third wife, and gave birth to two children, Simon and Cheyenne.
