" You've made many promises, but this one is Gold plated "
19 March 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

From a story written by Hollister Noble and directed by Edward Dmytryic is this feature film called "Mutiny. " Mark Stevens plays Capt. James Marshall and Patric Knowles is second in command as Capt.Ben Waldrid. Both men are signed on to escort a French shipment of Gold bullion to America during the war of 1812. However, even though it's a secret, the rest of the scurvy crew gets wind of it and with the help of a Greedy, selfish former lover plan on diverting it to their own pockets. Interestingly enough the heavy is played by Angela Lansbury, who seeks to convince her former romantic lover to betray the commander and sail off into the sunset. The rest of the scheming crew feels the same way and as the movie progresses everyone becomes hell bent on securing the gold for themselves. Aside from the fact, the script is fragmentary and shallow, the film is hampered with poor lighting, dark backgrounds and dreadful scenes. Were it not for cast members like Gene Evans, Rhys Williams and Clayton Moore, the urge to leave the theater hangs on to the end. Recommend to anyone who wants to see Lansbury playing to her evil side. ***
