The Sea Beast was a money picture for Warners in 1926. [This sound remake, using the title of Herman Melville’s original novel,] again stars John Barrymore.

Moby Dick is just as smart as ever, but Barrymore is smarter. He’s got a better whale to work with this time. And Moby Dick deserves his finish, after Barrymore has chased him over seven seas for seven years because of that leg bite.

Back home the demure Joan Bennett, who could never grow old out in New Bedford, waits for her whaling boy friend to return.

Moby Dick is stirring, even if you don’t believe in whales. And this one’s said to have cost Warners $120,000, with or without teeth.
