Yup. That's why Anakin's 'fall' and metamorphosis into Darth Vader still has that power (not even the prequels could diminish it), it's the parallel story of the filmmaker himself.

Goodness me yes - Huston is one of my favourite American directors, and 'Man Who Would Be King' is his finest masterpiece. Gives me shivers just thinking of that end sequence. Nice one Stoo!
