  • In New Bedford, Connecticut, in the 1800s, a group of seamen board the Pequod, captained by Ahab (Gregory Peck). They know they're out to harpoon whales; what they don't realize is that Ahab once lost a leg to the magnificent white whale Moby Dick, and that he'll risk anything to get back at the animal that maimed him--including himself and every member of his crew. John Huston's adaptation of Melville's symbolic and allegorical masterpiece about one man's obsession with battling nature's most powerful creature makes beautiful use of Technicolor in bringing one of literature's most beloved works to vivid life. Ray Bradbury wrote the screenplay for this first-rate adaptation of Herman Melville's 1851 novel.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Eccentric.....It is brilliantly shot by British cinematographer Oswald Morris in rich, dark colours..."
    Sight and Sound

    "[I]t does have a heady richness -- you can really smell the brine. There's no question that the film's visual scheme bears the influence of Welles."
