Scarface

Paul Muni and Ann Dvorak made their screen debuts in Howard Hughes’ independently produced Scarface (1932).  They both went on to lengthy careers through the 50s, with Paul an Oscar winner for The Life of Emile Zola (1935).

The first scene of Scarface (1932) is after a party.  A couple of years ago I saw it on a big screen at the El Paso Classic Film Festival, and finally noticed that in the first tracking shot to the burnt out partiers, the camera passes by discarded women’s under garments.
