“Working with a legend like John Huston (Fat City, Judge Roy Bean) was one of the great highlights of my career. Jeffrey Meyers has captured the essence of this extraordinary man, whose appetite for life and art was unparalleled. A must-read for all incurable romantics and lovers of film.”
–Stacy Keach, legendary Hollywood actor
“A deft study of one of history’s finest film masters and greatest egoists. Meyers’ masterfully orchestrated journey through Huston’s life and work–a constant contest between genius and cruelty–is neither hagiography nor indictment. Meyers presents a portrait of the artist that both seduces and appalls.”
