In 2011 I visited the replica of the Bounty which was used for the film Mutiny on the Bounty. The Bounty was lucky to have survived as long as it did. Built in 1960 for the Marlon Brando version of Mutiny on the Bounty, the ship was supposed to be burned for the film’s final scene. Hollywood legend has it that Brando threatened to walk off the set if the vessel was destroyed, so MGM sent it on a worldwide tour to promote the film and then moored it in St. Petersburg, Florida, as a dockside attraction offering public tours. 

And therefore I was able to see the ship in Ostend Belgiu

  1. Beautiful! Brando was right not to want it destroyed.

  2. Those old sailing ships were so beautiful.

  3. I am glad you got to see it...and even better that it still survives! Too wonderful to burn it...phooey!

    When I lived on Canada's East Coast, sometimes there would be a tall ships festival in the harbors of the coastal cities. That was always a sight to behold!
