"A cogent and entertaining series of observations. Hawks's astuteness in story construction and his mastery of film technique are manifest in his production anecdotes, and his analyses of actors' personalities are insightful." -- Film Quarterly, reviewing a previous edition or volume
"[D]ifferent from most film books about personalities.... The author really knew Howard Hawks, interviewed the crusty old director; the crust and insight come through in these interviews. There are going to be many biographies of Howard Hawks, but they will all lean heavily on this book; the pioneer so honestly reveals himself and the people with whom he worked." -- Los Angeles Times, reviewing a previous edition or volume
