The Life of Howard Hawks, in Under an Hour
21 May 2013 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

What makes this biopic (if we can call it that -- it is more of a career retrospective and not personal) worthwhile is that it was made while Hawks was still alive. That allows him to reflect back on his own work in a way no historian could.

I had no idea that he made a movie each year for 43 years. That is incredible -- and was anyone more versatile than Hawks, from the great comedies of "Bringing Up Baby" and "Front Page" to the classic westerns "Red River" and "Rio Bravo"? Not to mention the war pictures. Only Billy Wilder comes to mind for having that sort of range.

The film claims that Lauren Bacall was his best discovery. I find that hard to swallow, as I am not a big Bacall fan. They do acknowledge that "Hawksian women" tend to be raspy and manlike, with the exception of Angie Dickinson.

Well, if nothing else, the documentary makes me want to see more of his work -- so I just requested five more of Hawks' films from the library.
