Graf Friedrich Anton Maria Hubertus Bonifacius von Ledebur-Wicheln (June 3, 1900(1900-06-03) - December 25, 1986) was an actor who was known for Moby Dick (1956), Alexander the Great (1945) and Slaughterhouse-Five (1972). Ledebur was born in Austria-Hungary (later Poland) in 1900. Friedrich enlisted in the Austro-Hungarian Imperial Army in 1916 and was an officer in the Austrian Cavalry Division during the last years of World War I. In 1945, von Ledebur made his first film debut in "Alexander the Great" (1945). He played chief harpooneer Queequeg, a South Sea cannibal chief, in the film Moby Dick. "Better a sober cannibal than a drunken Christian," Herman Melville's Ishmael famously says of Queequeg in the book and the film.
