"The Men!.. The Mutiny!...The Might!... The Magnitude Of Herman Melville's Classic Adventure of the High Seas!"

"Billy Budd" (1962) is a British film adaptation of the play based on Herman Melville's novella of the same name. It is set at the tail end of the 18th century. A young man, Billy Budd, is taken from a merchant ship and forced to join the British navy. He is naive, innocent, and optimistic, which makes him popular with the crew. His simplicity, however, angers and disgusts the vicious master-at-arms who therefore seeks to destroy him.
