French Polynesia Issued Stamp on Movie \’Mutiny on the Bounty\’

\"\"French Polynesia has issued a stamp on the 50th anniversary of the shooting of \”Munity on the Bounty\” .The film was shot in 1961 with Marlon Brando as Fletcher Christian and Trevor Howard as Capt. Bligh. It was an international enterprise, which mobilized technicians and artists from the four corners of the world. The ship replica, which was 130 ft long (i.e. 30 ft longer than the original), was built in New Scotland and arrived in Tahiti with a Canadian crew. Six months of reconnaissance and 200 plans were necessary. All Tahiti was mobilized: four large outrigger canoes were built and more than 7,000 extras were hired and one thousand small canoes were used.
