Acclaimed director John Huston's (The African Queen, The
Maltese Falcon, Key Largo) authorative, masterly version
of Herman Melville's fabled novel is cinema at it most spectacular
- Intelligently adapted by novelist Ray Bradbury, Moby Dick draws upon the narration of the surviving shipmate of a terrible tradegy to tell the classic tale of Captain Ahab's (Gregory Peck) obsessive hunt for the great white whale that has dictated his destiny ever since leaving him a peglegged cripple. In a perilous journey that will take Ahab and his crew to the ends of the earth, no sacrifice is too great in Ahab's thirst for bloody revenge.
Stunningly shot and impressively staged - Moby Dick is an exciting, epic work bolstered by first-rate performances (as Fathe Mapple Orson Welles delivers a charismatic, show-stopping cameo) and Huston's audacious vision.
Consumed by an unquenchable rage, Captain Ahab (Gregory Peck) has but one purpose; revenge on Moby Dick, the great white whale who maimed and disfigured him. The obsessed skipper of a whaling boat, Ahab uses his command as an excuse to sail the seven seas in an unrelenting search of his prey. Battling a mutinous crew, tropical heat and violent storms, Ahab finally catches up to his quarry and begins a confrontation that culminates in an epic struggle of non-stop fury...and inevitable doom. This spectacular retelling of the Herman Melville classic, masterfully directed by John Huston, is unsurpassed in entertainment, imagination and high adventure!
