Summary
Herman Melville's classic story of the sea comes to life with this stark dramatization of man's fight between good and evil. The battle is fully realized in the personal and physical struggle between Billy Budd (Terence Stamp), a young, innocent sailor on a British man-of-war and his superior, the cold, cruel and often vicious Claggart (Robert Ryan). When Billy Budd's strong belief in goodness is threatened by Claggart's equally strong force of evil, the consequences for both of them are tragic and lasting
