THE CAINE MUTINY, adapted from Herman Wouk’s novel, is a classic, and one of the great and memorable performances which Bogart gave late in his career in the role of Captain Queeg, a mentally unstable U.S. Navy captain in the Pacific during World War II, whose apparent mental meltdown leads his first officer to relieve him of command, an act from which a mutiny court martial ensues.
