Bed Time Story? Orson Welles Wants To Read You ‘Moby Dick’

Orson Welles

For those who are unaware, the late, great Orson Welles did a lot of voice work over his career. From his unforgettable radio performance of War of the Worlds, to his work as a narrator (like this promotional video for shooting movies in my home state of New Hampshire; music by Tangerine Dream?), or even in animated movies, such as 1986’s The Transformers: The Movie, where he voiced Unicron. There is no doubt that he had one of the best voices we’ve ever heard.

For those of you who loved and miss this voice, here’s an old gem of a video of Orson reading Herman Melville‘s literary classic, Moby Dick. This may sound like a boring video to some of you, but if you’re not familiar with Welles’ brilliant and booming voice, you’ll be quick to discover that this is just flat-out awesome.

Now, this is not the first time Welles was involved with the classic white whale. He played multiple roles, including Captain Ahab and Father Mapple in a 1955 TV special; then again as Mapple in a 1956 movie. He was even used as Captain Ahab, Starbuck, and Ishmael in a 1971 short film that was never completed and ultimately edited together in 1999.

Grab your harpoon and row yourself on over to the other side to watch a bit of Orson Welles reading Moby Dick.
