Cinemasters: Howard Hawks

Howard Hawks was a true master of genre. He could turn his hand to any style of cinema, and produce a classic every time. So huge is his influence across golden era Hollywood cinema that even this series of six films can’t claim to include all his best. We couldn’t fit in The Big Sleep, Bringing Up Baby, Red River, To Have and Have Not, His Girl Friday… at least not this time. Nonetheless, this season offers an indispensable set of big screen classics. Treat yourself and don’t miss them.
