Exclusive H.M.S. Bounty Video: Sandy Casualty's 1960 Debut

November 2, 2012—Hidden in the National Geographic archives for more than 50 years, film captured by photographer Luis Marden shows the H.M.S. Bounty's maiden voyage to Tahiti in 1960. A replica of the infamously mutinous 18th-century vessel of the same name, the Bounty starred alongside Marlon Brando in 1962's Mutiny on the Bounty.

On Monday the ship sank off North Carolina while trying to avoid Hurricane Sandy. One crew member died, and the ship's captain remains missing.
