The world premiere of MOBY DICK starring Gregory Peck in 1956 took place right here in the former Whaling Capital of the world, New Bedford, Massachusetts. A rare film clip was located and restored from the MLBaron Historic Archives featuring Gregory Peck in an open car waving to fans in this elaborate parade put on by the city. This is the first time this film has ever been seen by the public. Familiar scenes on Purchase St and the New Bedford Hotel can be seen in the background. Although a brief clip it is still a fun nostalgic clip.
