It's part of the ongoing John Huston retrospective by the Film Society of Lincoln Center:

Quote
The 1953 novel by screenwriter and periodic Huston collaborator Peter Viertel recounting the director’s antics while shooting The African Queen on location (including his obsession with hunting elephants) forms the basis for White Hunter, Black Heart, one macho multi-hyphenate artist’s tribute to another. On both sides of the camera, Clint Eastwood limns one of his most complex creations—“John Wilson,” a dauntless filmmaker venturing into Africa as much to test his masculinity by “bringing down a tusker” as to get a great film in the can. His nerve, hubris, and genius make for a byzantine and troubling portrait of the artist. Featuring Jeff Fahey as the writer’s surrogate and George Dzundza as the stand-in for producer Sam Spiegel.

 Excellent movie. One of Eastwood's best. J. Hoberman put it in his top movies that year in The Village Voice...
