Okay Tom, gotta ask, is ther any prticular reason for this flurry of Hustonia today? And if so why no image from Chinatown?

There is indeed a reason, Brent. Yesterday, if he were still with us, would have been John Huston's 100th birthday.

As for why no images from Chinatown?

I never thought of it, to be honest . Though, on reflection, if I picked an image from one of the film Huston acted in, it probably wouldn't be that one since it's the obvious first choice. I'd have gone with The Cardinal or The Wind and the Lion

The first time I ever saw The Devil And Daniel Webster on TV, which must have been about 25 years ago, I missed the opening credits.

So I'm watching the film and Mr. Scratch shows up, and by the time the film is over, I'm saying to myself,"Gee, he looks and sounds just like John Huston."

It wasn't till some time later that I discovered it was Walter Huston.

What a great photograph! Where did you find that?

Thanks! I found it somewhere in the wilds of the internet a few months back. Not a bad find.
