This spectacular retelling of Herman Melville’s literary classic, masterfully directed by John Huston, is unsurpassed in entertainment, imagination and high adventure.
Consumed by an insane rage, Captain Ahab (Gregory Peck) has but one purpose in life: Revenge on Moby Dick, the great white whale who maimed and disfigured him. The obsessed skipper of a whaling boat, Ahab uses his command as an excuse to sail the seven seas in an unrelenting search of his prey. Battling a mutinous crew, tropical heat and violent storms, Ahab finally catches up to his quarry and begins a confrontation that culminates in an epic struggle of non-stop fury... and inevitable doom.
