Welles agreed that (John) Huston should have played Ahab.MOVIES WELLES SHOULD HAVE DIRECTED:
andrew sarris said of MOBY DICK, huston should have played ahab, and welles should have directed. that certainly would have been interesting.

There is material in Welles' correspondence about a SHADOW film in 1947, I think, which obviously came to nothing. I'll have to look at my notes, but I don't think it ever progressed past the ideas stage.
