There is a persistent but unsubstantiated rumor that the real Fletcher Christian did not die on Pitcairn Island, but made it back to England. Several of his relatives later swore that they had spoken with him, and that he lived out the rest of his life in hiding. See more »

i personnally rate this to be a vastly undervalued remake which has been unfairly dismissed by the critics and public alike. beautifully filmed, superbly acted and finely scripted by the late, great screenwriter robert bolt as well as boasting a superb soundtrack by vangelis. true, mel's accent is pretty naff but that's about the only minor fault to be found in this lush portrayal of jealousy, derring do and high adventure on the high seas (forget 'master and commander').
