John Huston War Stories


Time Out says

A fascinating interview with Huston conducted by Mackenzie and Leacock in the early '80s, together with extracts from his wartime documentaries, The Battle of San Pietro (1944) and Let There Be Light. (1946). Both Huston's films were originally banned, the former through fear that its frank reportage of the horrifying US casualty rate in the invasion of Italy might discourage new recruits (the ban was lifted only after General Marshall approved it, promoting Huston to Major); the latter for its unblinking focus on combat neuroses in a psychiatric hospital.
