The Mutiny of the Elisnore is a 1920 American silent action film directed by Edward Sloman and starring Mitchell Lewis, Helen Ferguson, and Noah Beery Jr. It is an adaptation of the Jack London novel The Mutiny of the Elsinore. It is not known whether the film currently survives.
As described in a film magazine, during a cruise of the Elsinore, Captain Nathaniel Somers (MacGregor) is assassinated and John Pike (Lewis) takes control of the schooner to provide an income for the skipper's son Dick (Casson Ferguson). The latter dislikes the sea, but Pike insists that he make the voyage to keep his obligations to Margaret West (Helen Ferguson), daughter of a former half-owner of the ship. Members of the crew are cut-throats, and mutiny at the earliest opportunity, giving Pike the fight for his life.
