Trivia: Moby-Dick
Film Version (1956)

  • Orson Welles was actually battling depression at the time of filming, and had to be coached through his lines by director John Huston
  • What Could Have Been: William Holden and Robert Mitchum were both pitched as possible alternatives to play Ahab, as they didn't think Gregory Peck was capable of playing a villainous character. Interestingly enough, Peck himself thought that director John Huston would have made the perfect Ahab.
