An Interview With John Huston


Certainly not. I am more lost in wonder than ever.

Do you think that Americans tend to underestimate the productive span of life?

Quite possibly. I’m sure I’m not fooling myself when I say I am just as able to make a picture today at seventy-five as I ever was—as long as it doesn’t involve climbing a mountain. I would rule out Everest as a location. I’ll accept the end readily and easily when the time comes. I expect I’ll go out the way Saroyan said he would, curious about what comes next.
