1954: The war drama "The Caine Mutiny," starring Humphrey Bogart, José Ferrer, Van Johnson and Fred MacMurray, premieres in theaters. The film, based on the 1951 Pulitzer Prize winning novel of the same name, depicts a mutiny aboard a fictitious World War II U.S. Navy destroyer minesweeper and the subsequent court-martial of two officers. The movie was a box office success and the second highest grossing film of the year, earning $8.7 million to finish behind "White Christmas." It also received seven Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Bogart and Best Supporting Actor for Tom Tully.
