The Caine Mutiny

The Caine Mutiny is a 1954 film about a US Naval captain who shows signs of mental instability that jeopardizes the ship. The first officer relieves him of command and faces court martial for mutiny.






Captain DeVriess:
Disappointed they assigned you to a minesweeper, Keith?

Ensign Keith:
Well, sir, to be honest, yes, sir.

Captain DeVriess:
You saw yourself on a carrier, or a battleship, no doubt.

Ensign Keith:
Yes, sir, I had hoped...

Captain DeVriess:
Well, I only "hope" that you're good enough for the Caine.

Ensign Keith:
I shall try to be worthy of this assignment, sir.

Captain DeVriess:
She's not a battleship or a carrier; the Caine is a beaten-up tub. After 18 months of combat it takes 24 hours a day just to keep her in one piece.
