Scarface

print ad for Scarface (1932).  Howard Hughes was the producer and Howard Hawks was the director, but this ad gives Howard Hawks credit as producer with no director credit.  I assume Howard Hughes was considered executive producer.

Scarface

Ann Dvorak in a publicity still for Scarface (1932).  She was Howard Hawks’ first significant female discovery.  He liked her so much he also cast her in his The Crowd Roars, also released in 1932.  Ann had a successful career with over 90 acting credits through a 1952 tv episode.

Scarface (1932) is ranked number 7 on Golddberby’s list of Howard Hawks’ 20 Greatest Films,

I would consider this film as his number one.
