Ron Howard's Revenge

Think nice can't trump vice? The "Angels & Demons" director may take us to the dark side in his films, but his heart's still in Mayberry.

"I'm glad I did it," Howard says, "but I hope I never feel the need to do it again." Besides, he has bigger screens to fill: "I want to do this until I drop. When John Huston was directing his last movie, he was in a wheelchair and on oxygen. That's my idea of a good goal." For Howard, as for his audiences, every film takes him to another place. "And you discover something wonderful or troubling about yourself as you go along," he says. "I feel that it's important every so often to ask, 'How am I doing?' "

From this perspective, it appears Ron Howard is doing just fine.

West Coast editor Meg Grant profiled Dolly Parton in the May & June 2009 issue.
