Moby Dick / Herman Melville's Moby Dick (1956) DVD9, DVD5
The story of a sea captain, obsessed with the white whale that took his leg, became an obsession in its own way for one of Hollywood's greatest directors. John Huston read Herman Melville's Moby Dick when he was sixteen and had dreamed of making a film of it as soon as he began directing The Maltese Falcon (1941).

The narrator of the story is Ishmael (Richard Basehart, The Satan Bug), a restless sailor intent on experiencing life on a whaling ship for the first time. He joins a ship led by the mysterious Captain Ahab (Gregory Peck, The Omen), a brooding man with a wooden leg and an ominous scar on his face. Ahab lost his leg to the legendary white whale Moby Dick, and he's intent on getting revenge. It takes a while to persuade the crew that the mission of vengeance is one worth taking, but Ahab eventually wins the full support of his crew. Who will win the furious sea battle between man and beast?
