John Huston: Interviews

Robert Emmet Long, Editor, John Huston, Author University Press of Mississippi $22 (186p) ISBN 978-1-57806-328-4
Part of an acting dynasty that included his father, Walter Huston, and daughter Angelica Huston, screenwriter-turned-director John Huston (The Dead; Prizzi's Honor) lived life large as an itinerant painter, gambler, drinker, romancer, big-game hunter and, ultimately, enormous Hollywood legend. In John Huston: Interviews, editor Robert Emmet Long (Ingmar Bergman; The Films of Merchant Ivory) gathers 21 interviews with Huston that span the years 1952 to 1985 nearly the length of his entire career in which the director reveals aspects of his personal life as freely as he discusses his distinguished career. Long provides a fitting introduction, followed by a chronology of Huston's life and career and a filmography. ( Mar.)
