Review: White Hunter, Black Heart

User Review  - Jon Boorstin - Goodreads

Perhaps the best book about the battle to make a picture, and the sadistic, egomaniacal pleasures of being a director. Modeled on John Huston, and the making of The African Queen. Read full review

Review: White Hunter, Black Heart

User Review  - Raegan Butcher - Goodreads

Thinly veiled portrait of John Huston, quite a character.I am not into shooting animals of any kind,for any reason, unless they are trying to kill me, and so this story made me want to smack Huston and all the rest of those awful Big Game Hunters upside his head, but I still enjoyed the book.
