Mal Vincent hosts The Caine Mutiny

Monday, August 16th, at 7:00pm

The Navy was reluctant to work with the moviemakers because it didn’t like the word “mutiny” in the title or the character of the cowardly and disturbed Captain Queeg, played by Humphrey Bogart in of his best roles. Bogie finally won the festival’s Actor award for Casablanca but only after he lost for The African Queen and The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. This received seven Academy Award nominations, including Bogart as Best Actor and Tom Tully as Supporting Actor. The U. S. Navy, incidentally, has never had a mutiny. A lively music score by Max Steiner (Gone with the Wind) is notable. The cast includes Jose Ferrer, Van Johnson, Fred MacMurray, and new star Robert Francis. Produced by Stanley Kramer, it was a surprise box office hit. (1954, 124 mins)
