Reviews:  Adapted from the last book written by Herman Melville an allegory of good vs. evil with innocence standing by as the helpless victim. A naive young man is pressed into the service of the British Navy at the very end of the 18th century. He views first hand the cruelty and extreme brutality of the ship's sadistic master-at-arms and accidentally kills him. He is then tried for his murder.System
