Sue Carol and Arthur Lake in a publicity still for The Air Circus (1928), Howard Hawks’ seventh of eight silent films, and from surviving posters and stills, his most ambitious silent work.  Not even a brief clip exists from the lost film.

Lew Seiler was responsible for the dialogue in The Air Circus (1928).  Howard Hawks had nothing positive to say about Lew’s involvement in the film.  Based on the surviving still images of the lost film, it’s bewildering how singing and dancing was integrated into the film.
