Acclaimed director John Huston’s (The African Queen, The Maltese Falcon, Key Largo) authoritative, masterly version of Herman Melville’s fabled novel is cinema at its most spectacular. Intelligently adapted by novelist Ray Bradbury, Moby Dick draws upon the narration of the surviving shipmate of a terrible tragedy 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 peg-legged 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 Father Mapple, Orson Welles delivers a charismatic, show-stopping cameo) and Huston’s audacious vision.
