huston's hounds


Notes from the Pack - a dog blog. Film director John Huston with his dogs.

 'Huston had just previously broken off his innocent by-standing to audition
a beautiful, hopeless animal who had been brought to read for the part of a guard dog.

Huston sat on a pile of boards and watched with intense interest and patience and kindliness
as the dog muffed all his chances, grinning, sniffing and leaping about in foolish gaiety
when he was supposed to be attacking with intent to kill.'
