 Who was John Huston? / Facts   

  • During his 46-year career, Huston received 15 Oscar nominations, won twice, and directed both his father, Walter Huston, and daughter, Anjelica Huston, to Oscar wins in different films
  • Huston was known to direct with the vision of an artist, having studied and worked as a fine art painter in Paris in his early years
  • He continued to explore the visual aspects of his films throughout his career: sketching each scene on paper beforehand, then carefully framing his characters during the shooting
  • While most directors rely on post-production editing to shape their final work, Huston instead created his films while they were being shot, making them both more economical and cerebral, with little editing needed
  • Most of Huston's films were adaptations of important novels, often depicting a "heroic quest," as in Moby Dick, or The Red Badge of Courage
  • In many films, different groups of people, while struggling toward a common goal, would become doomed, forming "destructive alliances," giving the films a dramatic and visual tension
  • Many of his films involved themes such as religion, meaning, truth, freedom, psychology, colonialism and war
  • Before becoming a Hollywood filmmaker, he had been an amateur boxer, reporter, short-story writer, portrait artist in Paris, a cavalry rider in Mexico, and a documentary filmmaker during World War II
  • Huston has been referred to as "a titan", "a rebel", and a "renaissance man" in the Hollywood film industry
  • Author Ian Freer describes him as "cinema's Ernest Hemingway"—a filmmaker who was ever afraid to tackle tough issues head on
