    Patrick Stewart on wearing the peg leg:

    "The peg leg was another matter completely. For months, Stewart acknowledges, he was in denial about having to wear the leg. But the limb became a harsh reality when he was fitted for it at the production office."

    "I walked down the corridor of the production office, lurching, tottering," Stewart recalls. "I reached the far end and collapsed on the bench. I said, 'I can't do this. I don't know what I can do; I can't act this role and wear this damn thing at the same time.' "

    "By coincidence, stunt coordinator Chris Anderson had lost his leg a few years earlier in a horrific water accident. Not only did he work with Stewart on how to walk with the leg, he also talked with him privately about his own mishap."

    "Stewart eventually became so proficient with the leg, he says, "I actually became arrogant about it. I used to try and race down the deck as fast I could go. I could forget about it, but also I could make the leg part of the man--the difficulty, the discomfort, the frustration, the rage he feels about the pain, the constant pain of that amputated leg, which reminds him of Moby Dick."

    How another actor did it (like @Beth Gallagher described). In Joe's trivia link it said Gregory Peck injured his knee cap in filming, but didn't say how.

    @Patsy Faye, keep a close lookout for a bulge on Ahab's opposite backside, and please report back to us. :D

    Alert - Report on Moby

    We deleted the first 17 minutes, couldn't be doing with that - no sign of Greg, he came later :p
    We watched for around 30 minutes more and then came the scene I had recalled all those years ago, full circle of
    his leg ! Prior to seeing this, my theory was - they must have used a double for certain shots …..
    but no, they didn't. You see him climbing some steps, a back shot in full view - then he turns still in full view
    so, it was 'him' - no double. Back view, then turn around to front ! I switched off after that :p
    Now, I'm back to square one …………..

    No leg pulling, Patsy. It's as if he's looking right at you.
