Movie Monday: The Caine Mutiny
Set during WWII, The Caine Mutiny is based on Herman Wouk's highly acclaimed, Pulitzer Prize winning novel of the same name, telling the tale of a U.S. Navy destroyer minesweeper, the USS Caine (DMS-18) and its inhabitants. Led by Lieutenant Commander Philip Francis Queeg, a tough talking veteran officer determined to run a very tight ship, pressure arises among the crew, reaching a peak and resulting in the tension fuelled administration of court-martials... but not without a spectacular dose of mishaps and mutiny in-between. With a star studded cast including Humphrey Bogart, José Ferrer, Van Johnson and Fred MacMurray, this Navy based movie covers all bases, with action, performance and Hollywood credentials a plenty. The Caine Mutiny is officially a Cockpit USA approved movie for your Monday!
