Summary (From the publisher):

Herman Melville’s classic Moby Dick comes to life in this legendary screenplay by Ray Bradbury. In 1953, the young Bradbury was approached by director John Huston, and their efforts produced the definitive film adaptation of Melville’s novel, starring Gregory Peck.

Ishmael, a young man in search of adventure, finds more than he bargained for when he signs on the Pequot, an infamous whaling ship captained by the driven Captain Ahab, who will stop at nothing in his quest to confront and kill the legendary white whale, Moby Dick.

In his screenplay, Bradbury’s signature prose and eye for imagery distils the best of the novel, vividly drawing the scene on the Pequot, trapped between the divine madness of a powerful captain in search of a worthy foe and the vast indifference of the sea.
