I Was a Male War Bride

I Was a Male War Bride (1949) was Howard Hawks’ most successful comedy on its first release.  While it is still delightful, it is not a comedy masterpiece alongside his Twentieth Century, Bringing Up Baby, His Girl Friday and Monkey Business.

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Marilyn Monroe in the Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend production number from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953).  Howard Hawks had nothing to do with the scene, as he had no experience with the musical bits, although he always directs the musical bits which are more organic to the story, as in Only Angels Have Wings, To Have and Have Not and Hatari to name a few.

Fazil

Howard Hawks was unhappy with Charles Farrell as an exotic leading man in Fazil (1928).  His only other displeasing leading man was Danny Kaye in A Song is Born.
