Wonderful Tribute and Overview of Huston's Career
29 August 2006 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film is included as a bonus feature on the two-disc version of "Treasure of the Sierra Madre." I was not very familiar with John Huston before seeing this film, but now I seek out his movies.

This is a comprehensive portrait that covers Huston's entire life, features anecdotes from himself, his family, and his friends, and gives insight into his personality.

Huston was very much a renaissance man: served in the Mexican cavalry; worked as a writer, director, and actor; served during World War II; was an accomplished painter; and even became master of the hounds for Irish fox hunts.

This film also provides good information about such Huston classics as "The Maltese Falcon," "Treasure of the Sierra Madre," "Key Largo," "The African Queen," "The Misfits," and "The Man Who Would be King."

Huston was a larger-than-life personality who has left us a timeless body of work, and this is a fitting tribute to him.
