Did You Know?

Trivia

The movie is introduced as based on a true story, and there was indeed a mysterious and bloody mutiny aboard a ship also named the Berwind, occurring in the year 1905,. Per the news account of the time, the captain of the actual Berwind was the similarly named "E.B. Rumill," and the probable mutineer was named Henry Scott, names also used in the movie. . See more »

Goofs

There are several shots showing the ship propeller operating only partially submerged. This would be an extremely inefficient method of propulsion. See more »

Quotes

Leroy Martin: [as the two of them drag Mace from his bunk] What're you gonna' do with him?
Henry Scott: We'll throw him off the stern.
Leroy Martin: He'll scream like a stuck pig.
Henry Scott: Nobody'll hear him.
[They proceed to drag Mace, kicking and struggling, back to the stern of the ship, where they toss him into the sea]

Lame, predictable, except for Dorothy Dandridge
7 July 2004 | by pakhuntzSee all my reviews

Lame and predictable film with James Mason incredibly miscast as captain of the ship. you know immediately that Broderick Crawford will be the instigator of trouble as he always was and the outcome shows no surprises.

The best part of the film is the voluptuous Dorothy Dandridge who displays her charms that would make any crew mutiny for her. As as the custom in the 50's, she is married to a man who is twice her age which also makes the film sadly lacking.

Better to see James Mason in his other films in which he portrays a much more realistic person.
