Note: Floyd Brown announced the movie since Frazier Thomas had died earlier that month on April 3rd. This was during a transitional period before Roy Leonard took over hosting duties for this show on October 13th 1985, beginning with the airing of "For the Love of Benji".
This was the 12th of fifteen showings of "Moby Dick" on "Family Classics." WGN lost the rights to the film for a period in the 1970s to WFLD.
The Family Classics theme song was called "Moviescope" and was a piece of library music composed by Dennis Berry. It was originally released on the Berry/Conroy label.
