Merry Christmas from Bounty, now in TECHNICOLOR. Or whatever the thing is nowadays.
Panel 1: Tall Ship Bounty, courtesy of Boatnerd.com.
Panel 2: Clark Gable as Christian and Charles Laughton as Bligh in Mutiny on the Bounty (1935).
Panel 3: Errol Flynn as Christian in In the Wake of the Bounty (1933).
Panel 4: Anthony Hopkins as Bligh in The Bounty (1984).
Panel 5: Marlon Brando as Christian and Trevor Howard as Bligh in Mutiny on the Bounty (1962).
Panel 6: The Mutineers turning Lt Bligh and some of the officers and crew adrift from His Majesty's Ship Bounty, 29 April 1789 by Robert Dodd.
Incidentally, though all of the screen versions of the mutiny are fun, the '84 film The Bounty with Mel Gibson as Fletcher Christian and the incomparably furious Anthony Hopkins as Bligh is the most wicked fun. Check it out, cause it's probably like 3 bucks. Cheers!
