Storyline

A life-sized replica of the H.M.S. Bounty was built in Lunenberg, Nova Scotia for use in filming the movie, Mutiny on the Bounty (1962). The ship is making a tour of the Pacific northwest cities of Vancouver, Victoria, Seattle and San Francisco to promote the movie. The stop in Seattle is in conjunction with the World's Fair. Wherever the ship goes, it is greeted with much fanfare, from the platoon of official and unofficial water craft accompanying the ship into the harbor, to the list of local dignitaries attending the official ceremonies, to the throngs of fans who are lining up to take a tour of the vessel.

WELL NOW, HOW about this. MGM has a remake of MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY coming out. So, what does their short subjects department cook up ? Tat's right, you guessed it, Schultz ! They brought us a little film about the maiden voyage of their newly launched replica of the H.M.S. BOUNTY, itself !

NOW WE'RE NOT saying that it's not interesting, for it truly is; but to a certain extent. It has the appearance of one of those newsreels, albeit of a very small area of subject matter. This "special" reel sub-genre usually was restricted to something in the sports subject matter (World Series, Bowl Game or Championship Fight), or to an important Political story; such as National Conventions or Presidential Elections.

BUT THIS SHORT Subject was meant to serve one purpose, and one purpose only. And that would be to hype the pending release of the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer remake production of MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY; although, to be fair the picture is not mentioned directly. Nor are any of its stars (being Marlon Brando, Trevor Howard and Dondi).

AS FOR ANY Historical significance, there is at least a smattering of that. It proves invaluable to any historian (amateur or professional) who desires archive footage of local Pols and Fair Managers while they are receiving their complimentary 3 cornered hats !
