Tyrant of the Sea is a 1950 American historical war film directed by Lew Landers and starring Ron Randell, Rhys Williams and Lester Matthews. It is set during the Napoleonic Wars, with Admiral Horatio Nelson appearing as a character.


The film began as a project The Return of Captain Bligh and was to star Charles Laughton, who had famously played Captain Bligh in Mutiny on the Bounty (1935). However Laughton did not want to repeat his performance so the project was rewritten to focus on a fictitious character.[1] Rhys Williams played the part based on Bligh.[2]

The actual lead was Ron Randell.[3] Randell made the film while also appearing on stage in a double bill of Terence Rattigan plays, Harlequinade and The Browning Version.[4] Filming started 16 August.[5] The film's sets were designed by the art director Paul Palmentola.
