Mutiny on the Bounty on DVD - new release

Recommended Posts

Can anyone answer this question? I own a 2-VHS tape version of Marlon Brando's Mutiny on the Bounty. The DVD has just been released and I'd like to buy it, but I'm wondering...

 

Does anyone know if this newly released version contains the not oft-seen opening scenes where the British finally find Pitcairn Island and they are talking to the botanist (Brown) who, in fact, narrates the film? He tells the British sailors that the original mutineers have all but died off, either killing each other or themselves, or from natural causes.

 

Then the film goes into the flashback that everyone knows. And at the end, it returns to the Island and the botanist. The soldiers tell him they are returning to England and will leave him in peace.

 

I've only seen this piece of the film once (maybe twice) on the old Million Dollar Movie that used to show in the New York area.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks.

When TCM showed it a while back, it was 185 (or about) minutes - there's an Overture and an Entr'acte/Intermission to extend the playing time. It just barely fit on the 3 hr DVD I was making (that machine will go to 185 max). I don't have it handy in order to answer about the very opening.
