Ogdensburg, NY, Jun 18, 2010 — The sailing ship used in three Hollywood films has dropped anchor in the North Country. The HMS Bounty is docked in Ogdensburg on the St. Lawrence River this weekend while on its way to the Great Lakes United Tall Ships Challenge. It was built in 1960 for the remake of the movie "Mutiny on the Bounty", starring Marlon Brando and was used more recently in one of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" films with Johnny Depp. Tours of the ship are available throughout the weekend. Todd Moe spoke with Captain Robin Walbridge on the main deck of the Bounty on a blustery afternoon. Walbridge says his 180-foot ship is a "good replica" of an 18th century British sailing ship, but larger than the original.
