The Caine Mutiny
The Caine Mutiny (film) - Wikiquote
A full-length adaptation, originally staged as a play, of the court-martial segment from the novel "The Caine Mutiny". This was an good adaptation of the Caine story. I've read the original book on which the story was based, and have seen the s film version many times, but hadn't seen a stage version of this film. Wouk wrote both the book and this play. This version is interesting on several levels. First, unlike the original story, everything is stripped out except the courtroom scenes and the party afterward. This allows us to experience the story without having seen it first, which allows us to view the Queeg story fresh, without having seen it ourselves and formed opinions about it.
