About The Caine Mutiny Court-martial

Set in early 1945, during the height of World War II, this is a powerful drama of naval trial proceedings with an exceptional cast. OscarĀ®-nominated director Robert Altman (1970, M*A*S*H, 1992, The Player) takes on the much-adapted tale of Lt. Cmdr. Queeg (played by Brad Davis), picking up at the court-martial of Lt. Maryk (Jeff Daniels) for relieving Lt. Cmdr. Queeg of command of the destroyer U.S.S. Caine at the height of a storm. Eric Bogosian plays Lt. Greenwald, the defense attorney who, despite being ambivalent toward his client, is forced to mount a defense on his behalf. Expertly directed by Robert Altman, written and featuring a screenplay by Herman Wouk, this made-for-television movie excels at revealing the tensions between its central characters, including Lt. Cmdr. John Challee (Peter Gallagher) and Capt. Blakely (Michael Murphy). Newly remastered.
