Ephraim Wells: Maybe if he had been older, he'd have conquered all of it, or maybe he'd have had the sense not to try in the first place.

Walter Huston Facts
Lived at 596 N. Camden Drive, Beverly Hills, California.

Died only nine days before the birth of his grandson, Tony Huston.

By his own admission not much of a singer, Huston introduced the American pop music standard "September Song" in the 1938 Broadway show "Knickerbocker Holiday." His recording of the Kurt Weill-Maxwell Anderson song was a best-seller that year on the Brunswick label. Regrettably, when the film Knickerbocker Holiday (1944) was made three years later, Huston's role went to Charles Coburn, who, nevertheless, sang the song in the film, one of the few songs retained from the show. The film, long unseen, occasionally turns up now on American Movie Classics.
