John Huston

After all, crime is only a left-handed form of human endeavor.More John Huston [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I prefer to think that God is not dead, just drunk.More John Huston [09/02/2011 11:09:44]
It's not color, it's like pouring 40 tablespoons of sugar water over a roast.More John Huston [09/02/2011 11:09:49]
The directing of a picture involves coming out of your individual loneliness and taking a controlling part in putting together a small world. A picture is made. You put a frame around it and move on. And one day you die. That is all there is to it.More John Huston [09/02/2011 11:09:54]
What to do when inspiration doesn't come; be careful not to spook, get the wind up, force things into position. You must wait around until the idea comes.More John Huston [09/02/2011 11:09:00]
You walk through a series of arches, so to speak, and then, presently, at the end of a corridor, a door opens and you see backward through time, and you feel the flow of time, and realize you are only part of a great nameless procession.More John Huston [09/02/2011 11:09:06]

I don't approve of censorship. I like the French theatre idea. Put on the play, and if the audience doesn't care for it, or feels offended by it, they rip up the seats.More John Huston [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

There is a wilful lemming-like persistance in remaking past successes time after time. They can't make them as good as they are in our memories, but they go on doing them and each time it's a disaster. Why don't we remake some of our bad pictures - I'd love another shot at 'Roots of Heaven' - and make them good?More John Huston [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Most people never have to face the fact that at the right time and the right place they're capable of anything.More John Huston [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Marilyn was one step from oblivion when I directed her in The Asphalt Jungle. I remember she impressed me more off the screen than on…there was something touching and appealing about her.More John Huston [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
She went right down into her own personal experience for everything, reached down and pulled something out of herself that was unique and extraordinary. She had no techniques. It was all the truth, it was only Marilyn. But it was Marilyn, plus. She found things, found things about womankind in herself.More John Huston [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You're good, you're real good.More John Huston [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A work of art doesn't dare you to realize it. It germinates and gestates by itself.More John Huston [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You walk through a series of arches, so to speak, and then, presently, at the end of a corridor, a door opens and you see backward through time, and you feel the flow of time, and realize you are only part of a great nameless procession.More John Huston [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Hollywood has always been a cage...a cage to catch our dreamsMore John Huston [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Crime is a left- handed form of human endeavor.More John Huston [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
For sheer strength of character, I wouldn't have dared to cross swords with Callas. I would rather have gone six rounds with Jack Dempsey.More John Huston [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Even Michelangelo on his deathbed thought he'd done nothing to ennoble art. He wanted to destroy his work-the Pieta! And this from the greatest artist who ever lived. Of course I am not comparing my work to Michelangelo's. But this eternal dissatisfaction of the artist is what I was talking about.More John Huston [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am more lost in wonder than ever.More John Huston [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
