Playwright Wouk debuted The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial on Broadway in 1954 (the book also served as the basis for the 1954 Humphrey Bogart film). The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial pits Lieutenant Stephen Maryk against Lieutenant Commander Queeg as Maryk relieves his minesweeper commander of duty after deciding Queeg has become too mentally unstable to pilot their World War II vehicle, the USS Caine. He is accused of mutiny and put on trial by the Navy. It is at the trial that The Caine Mutiny Court Martial takes place. Wouk's eleven novels include "The Winds of War," "War and Remembrance" and "Marjorie Morningstar." The original Broadway production played 415 performances at the Plymouth Theatre. The cast featured Henry Fonda (Lt. Barney Greenwald), John Hodiak (Lt. Stephen Maryk) and Lloyd Nolan (Lt. Com. Philip Francis Queeg).
