  • John Marcellus Huston (August 5, 1906 – August 28, 1987) was an American film director, screenwriter and actor. He wrote the screenplays for most of the 37 feature films he directed, many of which are today considered classics: The Maltese Falcon (1941), The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948), Key Largo (1948), The Asphalt Jungle (1950), The African Queen (1951), Moulin Rouge (1952), The Misfits (1961), and The Man Who Would Be King (1975). 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[citation needed]. 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[citation 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 "never afraid to tackle tough issues head on."
  • John Marcellus Huston (* 5. August 1906 in Nevada, Vernon County, Missouri; † 28. August 1987 in Middletown, Rhode Island) war ein US-amerikanischer Filmregisseur, Drehbuchautor und Schauspieler, der in seiner fast sechzigjährigen Laufbahn an einer Reihe der größten amerikanischen Filmklassiker mitgearbeitet hat und so zu einem stilbildenden Filmemacher des amerikanischen Kinos wurde. Zu Hustons bekanntesten Regiearbeiten gehören die Humphrey-Bogart-Filme Die Spur des Falken (The Maltese Falcon), Der Schatz der Sierra Madre (The Treasure of the Sierra Madre) und African Queen. Huston gilt als exemplarischer Regisseur des Film noir; „tatsächlich gab es seit D. W. Griffith kaum einen US-Regisseur, der so viel zur Erfindung und Erneuerung des Kinos beigetragen hat wie John Huston“.
