Mutiny on the Bounty

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

Correction: Francis Drake was in fact the first to bring the potato to England. Unless you want to point out an error involving the species of potato or dates that are wrong or deliberately changed for the movie, there is no factual error.

Quotes

Captain Bligh: While our mission remains unfulfilled I'm not in any port, Mr Fryer, I'm command where you may find one day it's always lonely. You see, command allows no intimacies. You can hardly expect unquestioning obedience from last night's partner in a debauch.

Mistakes

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.

Trivia

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.
