Moby Dick (Original photograph from the 1956 film)
Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1956. Vintage reference photograph of director John Huston, cinematographer Oswald Morris, cameraman Arthur Ibbetson, and other crew members on location for the 1956 film. With the stamps of Israel Film Archive and National Film Archive on the verso, along with holograph ink and pencil annotations regarding layout and cropping. Huston's spirited adaptation of Herman Melville's 1851 novel. The prop used to represent the eponymous whale in the film was made of rubber and measured 75 feet, weighing in around 12 tons and requiring 80 drums of air and a hydraulic system to remain afloat. Unfortunately (but appropriately) the whale came loose from its tow-line and was lost at sea, requiring the crew to replace the model with a barge decorated with various "whale parts" which would be visible during filming, including a jaw, hump, fins, and tail. Set in New England, and partially shot on location in Ireland, Wales, Spain, and Portugal. 8 x 10 inches. Near Fine.
