MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY

(1935, Frank Lloyd) “Missster Christiiiian!!!” Laughton’s bellow as Captain Bligh launched a thousand imitations, while Clark Gable set bare-chested he-man records as Fletcher Christian, in this adaptation of Nordhoff and Hall’s novelization of the 1789 South Seas uprising. Best Picture Oscar, with Laughton taking the NY Film Critics’ Circle prize, his stentorian kiss-off on a bobbing boat a memorable highlight. Approx. 132 min. 35mm.

THE BARRETTS OF WIMPOLE STREET

(1934, Sidney Franklin) The legendary romance of Fredric March’s Robert Browning with Norma Shearer’s reclusive, invalided fellow poet Elizabeth Barrett, resolutely road blocked by stern patriarch Laughton — but is he more than paternal? Hollywood muffled the play’s ambiguities, but as Laughton (post-50 lb. diet and sporting Victorian mutton chops) noted. “They can’t censor the glint in the eye.” Approx. 111 min. 35mm.
