In 1789, the English ship H.M.S. Bounty begins a two-year mission. The ship travels to Tahiti to obtain breadfruit plants that will provide cheap food for slaves in the West Indies, the Bounty's final destination. The captain is William Bligh, a vicious taskmaster who doesn't flinch at giving two dozen lashes to any malcontent on board, for the most minor of infractions. The first mate is Lt. Fletcher Christian, who despises Bligh but has somehow earned the captain's respect. Bligh makes life miserable for the crew, and after the Bounty leaves Tahiti for the West Indies, Bligh orders the ship's doctor, a dying man, to stand on deck despite his illness. The doctor dies, which begins a chain reaction of anger leading to Christian leading a mutiny against Bligh

The best-ever movie version of Mark Twain's classic Royal mix-up. Errol Flynn duels into action in Warner Bros.' spectacular, spirited film of Mark Twain's classic novel. Amid 16th-century England's pomp and poverty, two look-alike lads, one a beggar and one young Edward VI, exchange identities for a lark. But their switch backfires and it's up to soldier of Fortune Miles Hendon (Flynn) to turn the tables on a conspirator (Claude Rains) and return the correct lad to the throne. Flynn's rakish persona, William Keighley's brisk direction, Erich Wolfgang Korngold's score and the spry performances of twins Billy and Bobby Mauch helped many a film fan form an enchanted view of olde England. That view is just as rousing today. The Prince and the Pauper is regal all-family entertainment. - Container
