Mutiny is a 1952 American Technicolor adventure film directed by Edward Dmytryk. It was produced by the King Brothers Productions and based on a story by Hollister Noble; the two parties also collaborated on Drums in the Deep South.
During the War of 1812, Captain James Marshall has to run the blockade of the US coast being operated by the British, in order to collect a war loan obtained from France, which is being paid in gold bullion. His first mate is Ben Waldridge, a former Royal Navy captain who was cashiered by the Navy. Waldridge has his former gun crew along with him and, when they realize that there is gold coming on board, they plot mutiny. Leslie, Waldridge's gold-loving former sweetheart, arrives at the same time.

The film was the first made by Edward Dmytryk after he gave testimony to the HUAC. The King Brothers signed him in May 1951 (he gave testimony in April). Dmytryk was the first member of the ten to give testimony and it was the first time a member of the Hollywood Ten had been signed to make a film in Hollywood since the blacklist. Congressman John Wood supported the signing, saying that it encouraged testimony.
Filming started 20 June 1951.
