The Caine Mutiny 1954

To prove  that Lawrence W Butler was more than capable of producing quality model ship action after the criticism levelled at him by Otto Preminger on In Harms Way, here's a look back to an earlier film he supervised with a really spectacular ship in a typhoon sequence in the well crafted movie starring Humphrey Bogart, The Caine mutiny.

The model is really well detailed and realistically weathered and has a very effective funnel destruction shot where the metal skin is seen to crush in a convincing way.

The frame grabs don't really show the hammering the model is receiving from the dump tanks and wind machines.
