Bradbury had been writing for the screen for just a year before he got his big break—writing the screenplay of Moby Dick in Ireland for his cinematic hero John Huston. The experience was life-changing, and gave the author much to write about: his Irish experiences prompted a string of plays and short stories, and the novel Green Shadow, White Whale; and his grappling with Melville led to his multi-media versions of the “space age Moby Dick,” Leviathan ’99. The Moby Dick screenplay remains one of Bradbury’s finest scripts. (HD presentation)
