Mutiny on the Bounty

Factual error: Francis Drake did not bring potatoes to the Old World. They were actually brought by the Spanish after the conquest of Peru.

Factual error: In the film, the mutiny occurs during the day, when Bligh allows a crewman to die of thirst. The actual mutiny occurred in the middle of the night, when Christian and several followers entered Bligh's cabin and awakened him.

Continuity mistake: During the dinner scene with Bligh, Christian, Young and Fryer, watch the wedge of cheddar cheese magically change size.
