Biography

Little is known of John Huettner’s sailing career. He was a crew member in 1932 on Pierpont Davis’s boat, the Santa Maria, which finished second in the Final Olympic Trials. Huettner sailed in the Olympics when Owen Churchill, who won the Trials, allowed Davis’s crew to compete in some of the Olympic races. Huettner eventually became an attorney in Los Angeles, but after the Olympics, he acted in a few movies, mostly as an extra or an uncredited cast member. Notably, he appeared in the classic movie Citizen Kane (1941) as an uncredited cast member in Xanadu Great Hall. Huettner also appeared in Hands Across the Table (1935), The Big Broadcast of 1938 (1938), and Journey into Fear (1943).
