Red River

Joanne Dru defends herself  and her group in a publicity still for Red River (1948), ranked number one on Goldderby’s list of Howard Hawks’ 20 Greatest Films.

None of Howard Hawks’ eight silent films are on the list.  They cannot be evaluated properly as they exist only in poor bootleg qualities, if they exist at all.  Of his silent films, A Girl in Every Port, is his best and most widely seen.  It would have to be considered if the list were expanded to 25 titles.
