These are more of my index cards on pictures directed by the great laconic American director of all genres, Howard Hawks; the films below were each seen by me for the first time in 1961, while I was preparing the first Hawks retrospective in the U.S., at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. titled The Cinema of Howard Hawks, the series ran for six months in 1962, and a monograph of the same title was published which featured a lengthy career interview I did with Hawks. That conversation, as well as several others I had with him, are all included in my book, Who the Devil Made It (1997), now also available as a fat e-book.

I offered to write something that could be read. As it turned out, Cybill Shepherd, who had met Gore with me, asked if she could read it, and did, I’m sure beautifully. Here’s what I wrote (with a few small additions):
