The Synopsis for Moby Dick (1956) 1080p

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. Ahab is so crazed by his desire to kill the whale, that he is prepared to sacrifice everything, including his life, the lives of his crew members, and even his ship to find and destroy his nemesis, Moby Dick.

The Reviews for Moby Dick (1956) 1080p

A Disney movieReviewed byalvor-samVote: 4/10

And I don't mean that in a good sense. It's slightly better than Treasure Island from 1950. A movie that is "old" doesn't make it a "classic", you know. Yes, it was the first and most important movie version of the acclaimed book, but the directing isn't particularly good in the dialogue scenes, they are too stiff and unnatural—I'm guessing the tone and spirit on the set wasn't the easiest (an assumption). Not going to call it over-played, I instead blame it on the director. On the flip-side the filming on the ship is fantastic, technically speaking.

I heartily recommend the 1998 made-for-TV picture with Patrick Stewart instead. But don't forget to watch this for historical reasons, and to be able to answer "yes" when people ask you if you've seen it.

If you like this review, I'll buy you a glass of rum. - Thank you for reading!

Sorely disappointed.....Reviewed byajb-nav85Vote: 1/10

Well, after reading the book for the first time, I decided to search for and download a movie version. This is the only one I could find available. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm no stranger to the movies from this era (production value, obvious painted backdrops vice real-life backgrounds, et cetera), and some of my favorite movies (I've seen and own literally thousands of movies) were made then as well. But with this one, I couldn't even make it through the first half hour. At first I was slightly annoyed by the dozen or so completely wrong details and dialogue, but I kept going because I know that always happens when a movie is adapted from a book. What finally killed it for me and what I simply couldn't bear was the TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE acting of Gregory Peck as Captain Ahab. It honestly reminded me of when an adult film star "acts" in a movie. I don't believe I've seen many, if any, of his other films, but given his very long career, I have to assume this was just one of the "let's just move on and try to forget about it" movies that all long-term actors seem to inevitably make at some points in their careers. For those who wrote those extensive, raving reviews, if you honestly believe what you wrote, I envy you and the ease with which you are satisfactorily entertained, though I suspect many were written simply in an attempt to "break in" to the business by sucking up to someone or another.

"We are all killers, on land and on sea," wrote Herman Melville more than 100 years ago. But the artistic failure of a recent television adaptation of his greatest work shows that some are killers, too, on screen. Movie makers. Butchers. Their guts are now gorged with Moby Dick. "Majestic" raved "TV Guide" about USA Network's production of Melville's book. Reading that review I had a fantasy where Captain Ahab, with his sublime limp, walks into the magazine's office, shoves director John Huston's 1956 film of Moby Dick into the VCR, points to the screen and defiantly exclaims: "There's majesty for you . . . " . . . in the faces of men. Huston's film benefits from its intelligent casting of the seamen. The actors in the recent production are just pretty-boy imports from Los Angeles, rabble-rousers lacking the dignity that is gained from a lifetime of duty. But that dignity is plainly visible on the rugged faces of the men in the earlier film. One rarely sees that anymore. . . . in the faces of women, too. The images of the women suffering as they watch their men go off to sea are utterly devastating, they hold so much emotional depth, so much beauty. The attention to detail in Huston's film is striking: the hairs on the chins of the old women, the tired, thick-skinned expressions of the wives and widows, the heavy shawls covering their heads. . . . in the performances. Over 40 years ago when Orson Welles gave his performance as Father Mapple (a role which only a person with a special kind of magnificence could successfully take on), Gregory Peck might have been busily preparing for his role as Captain Ahab in the same film. What a testament to Peck's stature as one of our leading actors that throughout his career he could play not only Captain Ahab but also, in the recent production, Father Mapple. . . . in the color. Huston's film is in Technicolor, a technique which produced colors not even seen in nature. The sky is now blue now red now green. The water is brown, pink, gray. Colors blend. Colors clash. By comparison, how banal the colors of our post-Technicolor world! . . . in the mouth. The seamen have the exquisite mouths of pipe-smokers. The upper lip tight and stiff after so many hours pulled down in the puff. . . . in the eyes. My favorite scene is where Peck as Captain Ahab famously proclaims: "Speak not to me of blasphemy. I'd strike the sun if it insulted me." The lighting, the acting, everything here is superb. The camera is focused tightly on Peck's face. The stark appearance of his eyes -- the tense, black irises all surrounded by gleaming white -- seems to reveal the subtext of the story. His eyes electrify! John Huston's film says more in its two hours than USA Network's says in four; it suggests a lot and explains little, whereas the latter tries to explain a lot but says nothing. A great film, it doesn't butcher Melville's Moby Dick but adds to its power.
