Prizefighter and the Lady

Myrna Loy, Max Baer, Walter Huston and Vince Barnett in a publicity photo for Prizefighter and the Lady (1933), another Hawks film for which he only directed the first few scenes.  It was one of three films he made at MGM in 1933, the first and last time he worked for the studio.

The Criminal Code

Yeah, Yeah, the inmates repeat Yeah, mocking warden Walter Huston in The Criminal Code (1931).

The Criminal Code

the warden questions one of the inmates about having an affair with his daughter in a screencap from The Criminal Code (1931), Howard Hawks’ second sound film.

Ball of Fire

The back of this publicity still for Ball of Fire (1942) reads

P-184.

TWO FOR TEA – Four o’clock is the tea time on Samuel Goldwyn’s “Ball of Fire” set and the time when the players invite their friends to visit the set.  Here Walter Huston, who is not in the cast, drops in on Gary Cooper, who co-stars in the comedy of a professor and a strip-teaser with Barbara Stanwyck.

Howard Hawks

Howard Hawks with a group of men that includes Walter Huston.  Perhaps this is when Howard was attached to The Outlaw featuring Huston, and the men are business partners of The Outlaw’s producer Howard Hughes.

The Criminal Code

The convicts respond to warden Walter Huston with a loud chorus of YEAHs.

The Criminal Code

Warden Walter Huston tells it straight to convict Phillips Holmes in a screencap from The Criminal Code (1931) who happens to be Huston’s daughter’s boyfriend.

The Prizefighter and the Lady


Walter Huston, Myrna Loy and Vince Barnett in a publicity still for The Prizefighter and the Lady (1933), the first of two films with Walter Huston that Howard Hawks started but did not complete.  Hawks also began work on The Outlaw with Huston as Doc Holliday, but he quit to direct Sergeant York instead.

The Prizefighter and the Lady

Myrna Loy, Walter Huston and Otto Kruger in The Prizefighter and the Lady (1933).  Otto was born in Toledo, Ohio and had 120 acting credits in his career, from 1915 to 1964.  His career highlights include the first Thin Man sequel, Another Thin Man, Hitchcock’s Saboteur, Cover Girl, Murder My Sweet, and High Noon as the judge.

The Prizefighter and the Lady

It’s unclear if Hawks quit or he was fired from The Prizefighter and the Lady (1933).  He later admitted he directed the first few scenes.  It was one of three unhappy films he worked on while at MGM in 1933-34.  He got credit for Today We Live (1933) but it was ruined by studio interference, and he was fired from Viva Villa (1934).
