Huston family to be honored at film festival

Anjelica Huston and Danny Huston will celebrate their family's film legacy at the TCM Classic Film Festival next month, The Associated Press reports.

The two actors will present "Hollywood Dynasty: The Hustons" on April 24. The tribute will include screenings of three films and question-and-answer sessions. The festival, which is open to the public, will be held April 22-25 in Los Angeles.

Among the films is a recently restored version of 1948's "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre," written and directed by their father, John Huston, who won Oscars for both. Their grandfather, Walter Huston, won for best supporting actor in the movie.

"So many films get forgotten about and deteriorate, so it makes my family and myself very happy to see the kind of restoration Turner [Classic Movies] puts into these movies," Anjelica Huston, 58, said in an interview.

She said this is the first time she and her brother will have films in the same festival, and that having their work shown alongside their father's "makes us feel sort of dynastically active, so it's a lovely thing."

Huston said she's particularly pleased that her father's work is being preserved and can reach new audiences.
