Visitors to the Toronto waterfront during the Canada Day weekend will get a chance to meet a Hollywood star -- the tall ship seen in the 2006 film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, as well as numerous TV shows and documentaries.
HMS Bounty was built in Lunenburg, N.S., in 1960 for the Marlon Brando film Mutiny on the Bounty. Extensively renovated in 2006-2007, the ship now makes its home port on Long Island, New York.
It will be among several tall ships appearing at the Redpath Toronto Waterfront Festival, set for June 30 to July 4. Others include the Roald Amundsen from Germany, the Europa from the Netherlands, and the Denis Sullivan and Pride of Baltimore II, both from the U.S. The ships will be open for tours and to let visitors meet crews. They later move on to Cleveland, Ohio; Bay City, Mich.; Green Bay, Wis.; Duluth, Minn.; and Chicago, Ill.
