Howard Hawks’ early career

Quicksands premiered Feb 28, 1923.  The first time Howard Hawks received credit on a film poster was as writer, not producer or director.  Todd McCarthy wrote “despite a solid cast and good reviews, the picture did only fair business.  In 1927 it was bought by Paramount Pictures.  They cut it from 70 to 60 minutes and re-released it briefly.  Not even a bit of the film survives.
