O Henry’s Full House

At least when Howard Hawks’ segment was edited out, the name was changed from O Henry’s Full House (1952) to Four Paginas de la Vida in this foreign poster.  The reasons given for Hawks’ removal were length, even though all five segments combined are under two hours, and that the comedy did not fit in with the other dramatic stories, but some comedy relief is always welcome.

O Henry’s Full House

Howard Hawks’ segment, The Ransom of Red Chief, was usually edited out, turning O Henry’s Full House (1952) into four of a kind.
