Huson s art looks to us I suspect as Shakespeare s did to his it although of course there are moments when music should take. contemporaries like nature itself over and dominate the action. James Agee in his enormously influential 1950 Life. magazine portrait established this understanding Each of Huston s. pictures has a visual tone and style of its own dictated to his. camera by the story s essential content and spirit.
