Come and Get It

original title card for Come and Get It (1936), based on a popular novel by Edna Ferber, at a time when most Americans routinely read for pleasure.  Edna was displeased with Howard Hawks’ unfaithful adaptation, as Hawks always used the source material as merely a starting point for his own brand of story telling.

Air Circus

lobby card for The Air Circus (1928), Howard Hawks’ sixth of seven silent films at 20th Century Fox.  A 1938 fire at the studio destroyed many of their silent films.  There are not even any surviving clips from the film.
