This classic story by Herman Melville revolves around Captain Ahab and his obsession with a huge whale, Moby Dick. The whale caused the loss of Ahab's leg years before, leaving Ahab to stomp the boards of his ship on a peg leg.

The Reviews for Moby Dick (1956) 1080p


Easier to Watch than the Book to ReadReviewed byragosaalVote: 7/10

I red Herman Melville's book "Moby Dick" some years ago and though the story was really captivating and I enjoyed it very much but somehow it seemed too long to me. This film version by John Houston lasts a couple of hours and I think it works very good as a resume of Captain Ahab's revengeful chase of the white whale. Don't get me wrong: the book is a classic and a very good one too but it is movies we're talking about here.

"Moby Dick" is a real good adventure film and Houston's direction is pretty accurate. He delivers the plot slowly but constantly up to the moment we are all waiting for: the appearance of the whale ("huge as mountain of snow"). In the meantime he shows the different characters on board the "Pequod" such as the professional Mr. Starbuck, the second in command; the tough and at he same time friendly Mr. Stubb; the mysterious Queequegg with his body covered by tattoos; and Ishmael the newcomer in search for adventure.

But the center of the whole thing is Captain Ahab with his leg ripped of by the white whale and living with the only purpose of taking revenge of the beast. Nothing else matters for him. And so obsessed Ahab is that he finally passes his madness into his men too.

Gregory Peck brings a fine performance as the tortured and insane Captain and he shows perfectly he has been a dead man long before his meeting at sea with Moby Dick. Leo Genn is good too as well as Harry Andrews as Stubb (I can't recall a bad performance from Andrews in all his many appearances as a supporting actor). Richard Basehart is correct in the role of Ishmael, though perhaps his acting is a little too light here.

The final battle between the men and the white whale is outstanding or even more if you consider it was made with the special effects of the 50's. Huston shows his skill here too.

Watch this film if you missed it (don't go for that recent too long all computer TV version starring Patrick Stewart as Ahab); you'll sure enjoy it if you like high classic adventure with psychology in the characters too.

A terrific film. It can be messy, dated and continuously overwrought. But it's never less than entertaining, spirited and behind all the high-seas, biblical-vernacular romanticism is a very tough, serious action drama. Much of the film is close framed, including the hunting sequences. It's so dramatic this way, literally drowning the audience in the action: Huston also manages to catch Ahab's claustrophobia this way - no doubt he suffers his ties to the whale and would excise it physically to win himself some peace.

The cast is super. Gregory Peck's soul-scarred Ahab manages his Melvillian diatribes well - he's damaged goods but no hallucinating salt. Leo Genn's Starbuck is probably the pick of the rest as Ahab's quiet, earthbound, Chrisitan doppelganger. The cast continues in strength right down to the tambourine wielding page of Tamba Allenby. 7/10

Great effects, beautifully shot, and a tall taleReviewed bysecondtakeVote: 7/10

Moby Dick (1956)

Stunning low key color, remarkable special effects, a stern Gregory Peck as Ahab, and a cast of ruffians and odd characters from the world 'round. This is about as good as you can do with the novel, which is huge and which depends often on long passages of brilliant writing. Some of the monologues are here, and they are a high point of the script.

The tale is amazing, filled with metaphors of man's free will, his relationship to God and Nature, his duty to captain and to self, and his fighting for survival. It's also about legends and myth, and it transports us to a time mostly gone where the seas were more mystery than mere vastness. Everything is done by hand, and one pleasure of the movie is seeing an accurate depiction of the times, and the industry.

You do wonder now and then why the movie isn't even better. Why doesn't it really shake you to the bones, or make you question the meaning of life, or get weepy for the whale? Maybe it's because the language and the ideals are 150 years old. Times do change. The currents are the same, the big ones, but they get put forward (and illustrated) in a way that feels, well, illustrative. Allegorical. Which is terrific, but something less palpable. Interesting to see Ray Bradbury helping Huston with the adaptation.

I also don't know how to view Peck's job as Ahab. There is something perfect about him, very consistent, and strong (and that voice). But maybe Ahab was a little scarier and more mysterious than this (that's my memory from the book). Ahab was not just large, in life, but larger than life. Like the whale.

A remarkable effort, for sure. John Huston's manly ethic finds a perfect palette here. And without Bogart, but with a small part for a Walter Brennan-like bit actor Royal Dano, and great sermon by Orson Welles.
