Goofs

During the final ten minutes, when we first see the whale surface with Captain Ahab bound to it tangled in the lines, he's hanging from a harpoon by his right hand, and the second harpoon is under his left armpit.

The second time the whale surfaces, the harpoons have been reversed, this time with Ahab hanging onto the first with his left hand and the second harpoon under his right armpit.

In the third shot, the positioning returns to that of the original shot. See more »
