John Huston was a film director, screenwriter and actor. Can you imagine that this outstanding man received 15 Oscar nominations and won twice? He also "directed" both his father and daughter to Oscar wins.

Critics say that Huston directed his films with the vision of an artist. He wrote the screenplays for most of the films he directed. In his twenties, he worked as a fine art painter in France. He was known to continue the exploration of the visual aspects of his films throughout his career. He sketched each scene on paper beforehand and then carefully framed his characters during the shooting.

Today most of his films are considered classics.
