Genres: Adventure, Drama, History, Romance
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.
Fletcher Christian did not die as a result of a fire on board the Bounty, as shown in the film. He was killed much later by Tahitians during a conflict in 1793.
