The 1964-1965 New York World's Fair

Bounty

The famous British armed merchantman, as re-created in meticulous detail for the 1962 movie, “Mutiny on the Bounty,” is displayed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer at the Marina in Flushing Bay. The replica was built in Nova Scotia, to the plans of the 18th Century vessel.

The replica of the infamous HMS Bounty was only at the Fair for the 1964 season, as few visitors made it from the main Fair site over to the Marina. After the Fair the ship spent several years in Florida, and then cruised between locations, attracting considerably more attention than it did at the Fair. It also appeared in the film "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest". Sadly, the Bounty was lost at sea in Super Storm Sandy on October 29, 2012. (CD #25 Set 139 #1)
