Crazy Credits

Opening Card: In the Wake of the Bounty is not a drama. It is the first of a series of great travel films to be produced by Expeditionary Films, Ltd, depicting strange incidents, strange places, and strange peoples. Each travel feature will contain the thread of a story based upon a true life drama. The mutiny of the Bounty has been acclaimed as the most tragic and strange sea story of all time -- when a crew of British sailors sent their commander and eighteen companions adrift upon the Pacific and signed a sinister pact with a pagan race -- to live, in isolation, upon a rock, at the bottom of the world. The mutiny, which was a bloodless affair, was the result of an effort to transport breadfruit trees from Tahiti to the West Indies by Lieutenant Bligh, who was afterwards the Governor of New South Wales. The audience will follow in the Wake of the Bounty with Mr. and Mrs. Charles Chauvel, as they traversed 15,000 miles in the South Seas to secure the exact backgrounds upon which the drama of the Bounty was enacted. Expeditionary Films has not spared time or money to blaze a new trail-- a trail which they hope will lead to many pleasant hours amidst adventure and romance. See more »

In the wake of Errol
8 September 2016 | by girvsjointSee all my reviews

Most reviewers seem to have the wrong idea about this film, it's not meant to be a version of 'Mutiny on the Bounty' or even a feature film! It's basically a doco/travelogue, with a few 'flashbacks' enacting a few scenes of the Bounty 'drama'. The main interest is the scenes filmed on Pitcairn Island, probably the first, and the far from ideal living conditions of the inhabitants. Of the 'dramatic' scenes spliced in, considering the lead was most likely a seasoned 'stage' actor, and hammy as they come, the young, totally inexperienced Errol Flynn, signed for his looks alone, probably comes out best of all? It wasn't this film that Jack Warner signed him on, it was a 'lost' movie called 'Murder in Monte Carlo' he made in England about a year later that got him to Hollywood, and the rest as they say, is history! Incidentally, the derogatory remarks made about Australia by another reviewer, are nonsense!
