Ray Bradbury's Moby Dick

John Huston's classic film version of Herman Melville's MOBY DICK was written by Ray Bradbury getting his feet wet as a screenwriter. This was in 1956, just a  couple of years after the author's works were lifted for use by EC, at first illegally and then with Bradbury's blessing. 

A little known later appearance of his work as adapted by others for comics is this comic book adaptation of Ray's screenplay (written along with Huston)

  1. Huh! I knew Bradbury co-wrote the screenplay, did not know there was a Dell adaptation. Very cool.

    Bradbury also wrote the narration and one scene in the biblical epic "King of Kings," which was narrated by Orson Welles. Neither Welles nor Bradbury got screen credit.
