Ahab lost his leg and he may have lost something else. Like today's environmentalists, Orson Welles tells his audience to be cautious when challenging the natural world. Moby Dick represents Nature and Nature plays by its own set of rules.
What is here is well done. It's just boring. But what else can you expect from the source material?
The best thrilling movie ever made!
An absolutely breathtaking movie, stupendous in every way. Gregory Peck is magnificent and the bringing to life of the legendary monster whale jaw dropping.
It's still gorgeous, and Huston captures some of the awe and terror within Melville's poetry. Peck and Basehart's work drags at times, but the secondary & unknown players are pretty wild.
A bit dry, but it has its moments.
The film version does some justice to the original epic of the noble madness of Ahab and his crew.
faithful version to herman melville's classic tome, moby dick.
A fine telling of the famous book. Peck at the time came in for a lot of criticism but time has proved he did OK!
John Huston's flair for the manly adventure story gladly pounds it's own drum throughout this work that showcases men drinking, working, fighting, and in mortal fear together - it's what this film is all about. The women can only watch dockside and wonder if their loves will return. It's all portrayed very heroically, like Viking myth. And then there's the whale. The best of the big fish stories by my reckoning, symbolism aside, and even though Peck might overdo the "mad captain" bit sometimes.
