The Caine Mutiny

Trivia: The Caine's name was derived from the USS Zane, the Navy destroyer on which author Herman Wouk served during World War II.

Trivia: After Lt. Commander Queeg's curt briefing with senior officers he assigns orders to Ensign Keith regarding sailors' shirttails, hair length, and facial hair, and when Queeg leaves them Ensign Keith says, "Well, he's certainly Navy," and Lieutenant Keefer responds, "Yeah, so was Captain Bligh." This foreshadows the events to come, as it alludes to 1789's mutiny aboard the HMS Bounty of The Royal Navy, against its captain, William Bligh.

Continuity mistake: In the scene at Yosemite where Keith is waiting for May to have breakfast there is a big silver pot on the table. After May arrives the pot isn't there anymore. (00:43:45)
