  1. Here’s a fistufl of mine: The Unforgiven (1960); Man in the Wilderness (1971): Moby Dick (1956); African Queen … but most of his work I haven’t even seen!

  2. Nice eclectic selection John. Huston had quite a varied career from classics like The Maltese Falcon to cult films like Wise Blood. The latter featuring two of my favourite actors, Brad Dourif and Harry Dean Stanton.

  3. I agree with you on everything you just said 🙂 Who knew that a majority of his best work for me would come from the 1970’s considering that Huston first made it big in 1941 with The Maltese Falcon? 🙂 Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂

  4. It’s fine to feel otherwise, but outside of “Man in the Wildness the other 3 are generally regarded as outright Film Classics. For me, very rewatchable.
