What a great fucking scene. The first time I saw this, on video many years ago, I have to admit I broke down hysterically when Gregory Peck was stabbing Moby Dick. A reaction like that to a movie is something that happens about twice a decade for me.
Also, why is John Huston not given super-auteur status? Some of his movies are as high in the "canon" as anyone's (Maltese Falcon, Sierra Madre) but people go on and on about, say, John Ford.
