    Man Who Would Be King

    I love that he carried this project around for long
    and that he finally got to make it later on in his life.
    It's got a great sense of adventure and comraderie
    that benefits from a look back. Several times when
    Danny and Peachy are goners for sure, they accept it
    and revel in eachother's company. Very bravado but touching.

    Roots of Heaven-Not one of Huston's better films. Made during one of Huston's lesser periods.

    A Walk with Love and Death-Done during a time in what is considered one of Huston's lesser periods. Not a bad film overall, just not one of the director's better ones. I read in a book about John Huston that his daughter, Anjelica did not have a pleasant experience making this film and that it would be awhile before she would act in a film again.

    Beat the Devil(1953)- I saw the restoration at the Brattle theater which contained footage never before seen. The opening is different than what's been on previous versions. It is still one of my favorite John Huston films.
