The 1935 Film Contains Examples Of:
- Moral Event Horizon: We all know the film's Bligh is a Jerkass, but his ordering a dead man to be flogged crosses the line.
The Bounty (1984) Contains Examples Of:
- Alternate Character Interpretation: While Lieutenant (not Captain) Bligh can seem rather acid-tongued to his men, his bark is generally worse than his bite. He has some deserters flogged, while standard naval procedure at the time called for the death penalty. He proves his worth as a seaman by navigating the open launch from Tonga to Timor with one brief stop.
- Crowning Moment of Awesome: Bligh successfully navigating all the way to Timor, then nonchalantly reporting the mutiny the moment he arrives in port.
- Values Dissonance: Bligh's discipline can seem very harsh to modern eyes, but he was fairly lenient by the standards of the time.
- Indeed, Bligh's biggest problem was that he was too nice a guy to be the captain of a ship in those days. He let discipline go to hell, and when he finally did try to crack down, it was too little, too late.
- Wangst: How much Bligh was a tyrant and how much Christian was a whiny emo-boy is open to debate.
