John Huston was a writer at Warner Brothers who became a director in 1941 with The Maltese Falcon starring Humphrey Bogart (films he had written included the Bogart-starring High Sierra and the Oscar-nominated Sergeant York). He then directed Bette Davis and Olivia de Havilland in In This Our Life, and Bogart again in Across the Pacific, but left the completion of the latter film to Vincent Sherman when Huston was called in to the Army Signal Corps. For them he directed three films: Report from the AleutiansThe Battle of San Pietroand Let There Be Light.
