John Milius

The Wind and the Lion posterApocalypse Now powerBig Wednesday posterJohn Milius bw

‘Do I feel lucky?’  ‘Charlie don’t surf!’  ‘I love the smell of napalm in the morning.’  Indelible lines, written by one of the men who shaped Seventies cinema. John Milius is a maverick, a genius, a Zen anarchist, a surfing samurai, a great storyteller. Dirty Harry, Magnum Force, Jeremiah Johnson, The Wind and the Lion, the USS Indianapolis speech in Jaws, Big Wednesday,Apocalypse Now … the list goes on, but that would be enough.  Happy birthday, Mr Milius.
