King, Henry

1886-1982
   Henry King, hermano mayor de Louis King, es un personaje mitico en el mundo del Hollywood clasico. Nacido en Christianburg, Virginia, fue actor de teatro antes de entrar en el cine. Director de mas de cien peliculas entre mudas y sonoras, actor desde mitad de la segunda decada del siglo XX, fue capaz de dirigir dramas, historias de amor, comedias, peliculas de aventuras y, desde luego, un selecto punado de westerns. De sus casi 120 filmes, mas de la mitad son mudos y entre ellos hay que destacar un interesante western, Flor del desierto (The Win ning of Barbara Worth, 1926), con Ronald Colman. No demasiado creativo tal vez, destaca por la firmeza de sus puestas en escena, a las que dotaba de todas las virtudes, y de no pocos de los defectos inherentes a los guiones que manejaba. A partir de la realizacion de Jesse James su filmografia mejora notablemente, incluyendo algunos filmes de aventuras y peliculas de notable intensidad dramatica, co mo El cisne negro (The Black Swan, 1942), Captain from Castile (1947), La colina del adios (Love Is a Many Splen dored Thing, 1955) y la que seria su ultima realizacion, Suave es la noche (Tender Is the Night, 1962), basada en la novela de Scott Fitzge rald. Sus cuatro westerns son de autentica antologia y, paradojicamente, muy distintos unos de otros. Destaca el uso que hace, en los dos ultimos, del actor Gregory Peck. Henry King fue uno de los 36 fundadores de la Academia de las Ciencias y Artes Cinematograficas.
