Well not the best idea to drive to the muddiest section of the pumpkin patch. And the Great Pumpkin never showed either.


  1. John Huston with Humphrey Bogart. The two men worked together on The Maltese Falcon, High Sierra, Treasure of Sierra Madre and more!
  2. Huston’s iconic stature within the noir community made him a shoe-in to play roles like Noah Cross in Roman Polanski’s neo-noir, Chinatown(1974), shown here w/Jack Nicholson.
  3. Huston underscores the finer details of what is needed to the luscious Gina Lollobrigida on the set of Beat the Devil(1953)
  4. This photo, c/o A Certain Cinema, shows John Huston on his first day on the set of The Maltese Falcon. Flanked by Humphrey Bogart to the left and Mary Astor to the right, his dad, Walter Huston, was also present to wish him well & to see the director’s chair that had been gifted him by William Wyler!
  5. John Huston uses a lens to set up a shot of Jean Hagen & Sterling Hayden during the shooting of Asphalt Jungle(1950)
  6. Huston talks w/Hayden & Hagen on the Asphalt Jungle(1950) set
  7. A trio of talent: Huston, Rosselini, Negulesco!
  8. This photo, c/o cinearchive, depicts Bogart, Huston & Bacall on the set of Key Largo(1945)
  9. John Huston: in his element.
  10. Huston & Marilyn Monroe during the shooting of what was to be her final film & Clark Gable’s last hurrah: The Misfits (1961)

Today is the birthday of the irrepressible and unmistakable John Huston. Former amateur boxer, cavalry rider in Mexico & documentary maker during WWII, Houston was a man of many talents. He acted, wrote and directed films for 46 years, and was nominated for 15 Oscars.

His contributions to Film Noir are invaluable- some are written and directed by him (Maltese Falcon, Key Largo, Asphalt Jungle, uncredited work on The KillersHigh Sierra, many many more) and others are characters than others felt were so “Huston” that he had to play them- Noah Cross in Chinatown. 

His contributions to cinema, acting and screenwriting go beyond anything that anyone could possibly describe. Happy birthday, Mr. Huston! Thank you for your great gifts!!!
