Description

One Christmas I edited together the ultimate Moby Dick audio play, in which I combined performances from various versions -- Gregory Peck as Father Mapple, Richard Basehart as Ishmael and Charles Laughton as Ahab -- and gave CDs to my friends. Imagine my surprise when I got a call from legendary author Ray Bradbury, the screenwriter of the 1956 version with Gregory Peck as Ahab! Someone had given him my CD and he’d loved it! Turned out Laughton had been one of his dearest friends. Ray invited me over to his house and that began a friendship that lasted over a decade until his death in 2012, with me going over once a month and talking about life, death, career, everything. So here it is, my Ultimate Moby Dick, along with the front and back covers of the CD. Marc Zicree
