Fazil

Charles Farrett and Greta Nissen in an original lobby card for Fazil (1928).  Howard Hawks was not pleased with Charles’ performance. who showed no chemistry with his leading lady, and was unconvincing as an ethnic type.

Fazil

Greta Nissen and Charles Farrell in an original lobby card for Fazil (1928), Howard Hawks’ only pure romance.  His other romantic films all have elements of comedy or adventure.  There is no comedy in Fazil, and the adventure is negligible.

The Big Sleep

The Big Sleep (1946) is ranked number 2 on Golddberby’s list of Howard Hawks’ 20 Greatest Films,

Perhaps I would rank this a little lower, in fourth behind Rio Bravo and Bringing Up Baby.

Come and Get It

Come and Get It (1936, re-issued as Roaring Timber) is ranked number 20 among Howard Hawks’ Greatest Films.

I think it should be ranked a little higher.
