The Caine Mutiny is a 1951 Pulitzer Prize–winning novel by Herman Wouk. After the novel's success, the court-martial sequence was adapted by Wouk into a full-length, two-act Broadway play, The Caine Mutiny Court Martial.

Directed by Charles Laughton, it was a success on the stage in 1954, opening five months before the release of the film.
