He was also a well-regarded, Oscar-nominated character actor, most notably as the villainous Noah Cross in ''Film/{{Chinatown}}''. Indeed, his performance there was cited as an inspiration for Creator/PaulThomasAnderson's ''Film/ThereWillBeBlood'' where Creator/DanielDayLewis plays a similar evil robber baron. A novel about the making of Film/TheAfricanQueen (written by screenwriter Peter Viertel) was eventually adapted by Creator/ClintEastwood as ''White Hunter, Black Heart'', where Eastwood plays John Wilson, a spoof of Huston's LargeHam womanizing [[TheDandy dandy]] personality.
