    Sure. It makes sense. It is a classic motif in storytelling. A person
    overcompensates in one area to be what he or she believes is the "ideal." Not
    surprisingly the Javert (spelling?) Laughton played in "Les Miserables," is a
    man trying to compensate for the circumstances of his birth by being too strict
    to the letter of the word. Ultimately his realization is what prompts his
    suicide at the end of the film.

    (Although you *do* know that whole evil-Bligh "disgrace to the Navy,
    Misster Chrisstian!" stuff was essentially an intentional bit of
    historical spin-doctoring by the higher-ups, as Christian's family was
    more aristocratically connected to the Admiralty than low-ranking
    Bligh's was, and they wanted to avoid any trial or disgrace on the
    family name, don't you?...)
