Volume 5 Issue 2

In this issue

Our cover illustration this week is based on a still from the 1935 classic film of the Mutiny on the Bounty – the version starring Clark Gable and Charles Laughton, which was of course shot in black and white. ASP’s art department colourised the print, which was very detailed.

It was one of a number of fine artworks or photographs (created on location, during the filming in this case) that captured the dramatic moment when Fletcher Christian and his fellow mutineers set Captain William Bligh and his loyal crew members adrift in a longboat in the middle of the Pacific. Our article in this issue deals with the events leading towards the infamous mutiny.
