Quotes:
From The Bounty (1984)
Captain Greetham: [after learning at the trial that Bligh told King Tynah that Captain Cook is still alive] You told that to this man Tynah?
Bligh: King Tynah, sir.
Admiral Hood: A savage king.
Bligh: A king, milord, descended from many kings.
Admiral Hood: As our King George is descended from many kings?
Bligh: Yes, in a way, sir.
Captain Greetham: Then why did you lie to him? Why did you not tell him Captain Cook was murdered in Hawaii ten years before?
Bligh: Because they believe that Captain Cook is immortal.
Admiral Hood: Literally?
Bligh: Yes, I think so, sir. They seem to regard his likeness as a sacred image.
