QUOTES FROM Richard Basehart CHARACTERS

William Williams says: One doctor says it's paranoia, another says I'm schizophrenic; I try to keep them all happy.

Ishmael says: [voiceover] Call me Ishmael.

Ishmael says: Call me Ishmael.

Ishmael says: [in voice-over narration] He did not feel the wind, or smell the salt air. He only stood, staring at the horizon, with the marks of some inner crucifixion and woe deep in his face.
