Paul Muni and Ann Dvorak are brother and sister in Scarface (1932).  This was not technically Ann’s film debut, as she had three credits as Baby Anna Lehr (1916-20),  and 30 uncredited bits (1929-1931).  Howard Hawks was so pleased with his discovery, she was cast again with Hawks in The Crowd Roars (1932), as James Cagney’s girlfriend.
