Hi Steve; Great job finding all these old posters. Good to see 'the Maltese Falcon' poster, which is one of my favorite films.

Good job,

Rob

So many great movies in his career, and so many personal favorites....but I would say the Top 5 are The Man Who Would Be King, The African Queen, The Maltese Falcon, The List of Adrian Messenger, and Prizzi's Honor. Did you forget about Casino Royale(he is one of the 8 directors for that mess)?

I always get a kick out of the fact that he directed his dad and daughter to Oscar wins....and only forty or so apart.

Another movie I was looking for was Chinatown....although he only acted in the movie...but he plays one of the worst villians in screen history in that one....voted up and awesome.

Thanks Bruce, comment is appreciated amigo. Yeah I didn't include films John Huston only acted in and like you say Casino Royale had a whole bunch of directors working on it including Huston.

I'm giving this series of hubs a break while I work on finishing the Star Wars saga hubs, I started them so I have to finish. (cue Bruce groaning) :)
