    That was awesome but also his only scene in the film. Too short a performance IMHO to be counted with the all time greats.

    Yeah well whatever - IMO Laughtons perf in Mutiny On The Bounty was THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Clark Gable ( maybe his best perf) and Franchot Tone were awesome also.

    The1935 film PUNKED the 1962 version.
