Moby Dick
Rated
Herman Melville was a best-selling novelist when Moby Dick was published in 1851, but this grand, soaring allegory about mad Captain Ahab and the Great White Whale was so poorly received it nearly ruined him. The "respectable" critics hated it; they thought it wild and excessive, which should tell you something about "respectable" critics. John Huston's adaptation of this masterpiece, with a poetic scenario by Ray Bradbury, is good in many respects, but it has a puzzlingly bad piece of casting: Gregory Peck, who should have played Starbuck, is out of his depth as Ahab, a role that would have been perfect for Huston's old friend, Humphrey Bogart.
