Summary
"An actor in the 1920s and scriptwriter in the 1930s, John Huston made his dazzling directorial debut in 1941 with 'The Maltese Falcon'. His career as a filmmaker spanned some fifty-seven years and yielded thirty-seven feature films. He made most of his movies abroad, spent much of his life in Ireland and Mexico, and remains one of the most intelligent and influential filmmakers in history. With equal attention given to Huston's impressive artistic output and tempestuous personal relationships, biographer Jeffrey Meyers presents a vivid narrative of Huston's remarkably rich creative life." -- Book Jacket.
