I watched a 1954 movie last night that was pretty cool. The Cain Mutiny film is a 1954 American fictional drama set in World War II. Directed by Edward Dmytryk and produced by Stanley Kramer, it stars Humphrey Bogart, José Ferrer, Van Johnson, and Fred MacMurray, and is based on [I]The Caine Mutiny,[/I] the 1951 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel written by Herman Wouk. The film depicts the events on board a fictitious World War II U.S. Navy destroyer minesweeper and the subsequent court-martial of two officers. The film received Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Best Actor (Humphrey Bogart), Best Supporting Actor (Tom Tully), Best Screenplay, Best Sound Recording (John P. Livadary), Best Film Editing, and Best Dramatic Score (Max Steiner).[SUP][/SUP] It was the second highest-grossing film in the United States in 1954.[SUP][/SUP]
Dmytryk was nominated for a Directors Guild Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Motion Pictures.
I started watching it just because it was on, but soon couldn´t look away. I would definitely recommend to my shipmates.
