He was known for directing several classic films, The Maltese Falcon (1941), The Asphalt Jungle (1950), The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948), Key Largo (1948), and The African Queen (1951).

    wasn't X playing in a band and acting under the name X?

    there was a guitar player in a punk band who called himself X and then performed, my guess he may have done some film work with Joe Strummer, The singer from the Pogues whose name escapes me me now and possiblbly Fleaa and Anthony Kiedis?

    guy called X?

    Something that Angelina's mum would have liked -- I dunno.

    Chanel pour Monsieur, perhaps?

    Spanish Leather by Truefitt & Hill would be my guess

    Haha, I meant X as a variable. Basenotes hasn't had a "what would this person of the week wear" thread that has kept updating every week, just a bunch of random topics about what who would wear. But there have been many SOTD threads because it's of the Day. Dig?

    Cool Re: What would John Huston wear?

    Good Question!
    I haven't the slightest idea, but I saw him at the gift shop at LACMA ( art museum) around '86. He was in a wheelchair and wore a mask on his face connected to a respirator/oxygen tank in back.
    Hell, he still looked more alive than 99&#37; of the people there . . .

    I wonder if anyone knows what he actually did wear when younger?

    Cheers,

    Mario

    Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder.

    My Antaeus can beat up your Armani.

    Sam Peckinpah would have worn Knize Ten, no doubt about it -- leather and gasoline.

    But Huston? I'm still sticking with something along the lines of Chanel pour Monsieur, or possibly Antaeus -- roguish but classy.

    Actually either Knize Ten or Anteus would be good choices for Huston; also Creed Royal English Leather or Penhaligon's Blenheim Blend.

    At one point in his career he would have worn Cardinal by Heeley.

    Per the ajne website someone just turned me onto, I'd guess he might wear Huston itself:

    I suppose, some Creed or Floris scent, released and more on the formal, luxurious, yet also artistic side.
