Fun Fact

The Huston Family film dynasty includes his father, Walter, who appeared in several of John’s finest films, as did John’s daughter Anjelica, and John’s son, Tony, wrote or co-wrote several of his father’s late films.  With John’s other son, Danny, now regarded as one of cinema’s finest character actors, the Hustons have arguably become Hollywood’s greatest family dynasty, far outliving some of their early rivals, such as the Barrymores.
