The Caine Mutiny

Although a complete fiction, since there never has been a mutiny in the United States Navy, this film is famous for the starring role, acted by Humphrey Bogart, of the rigorous and pedantic Captain Queeg of the minesweeper Caine.  There are two cowards in this film and the denouement shows exactly where everyone stands at the end.  Brilliant and memorable, it was wonderful to have an opportunity of seeing this digitalised version.
