By Michael Samerdyke on September 3, 2002
Even if you have seen Hawks interviewed on "The Men Who Made the Movies," or have read other interviews with him, HAWKS ON HAWKS is still quite interesting and enjoyable. If you need to understand the essence of Hawks quickly, this is the book to read. We get Hawks' account of his career, the moguls he dealt with, the stars he liked and disliked, his thoughts about movies after he became inactive. Todd McCarthy's Howard Hawks The Gray Fox of Hollywood is a more thorough portrait of the man, and it is good to check Hawks' stories against the research in that book, but HAWKS ON HAWKS is still very charming.

Overlooked for years by the Hollywood establishment, today Howard Hawks is remembered as one of the cinema's greatest artists. The candid interviews contained in this book are funny, insightful and just plain enjoyable. Hawks discusses Bogart, Wayne, Bacall, and numerous other actors he worked with during his career, as well as commenting on his most famous films including Red River, The Big Sleep, and Bringing Up Baby. Especially noteworthy are the sections where he discusses the "Hawksian Woman", the Western and his fellow director and friend John Ford. A must for Hawks' fans.

Although this is published by a university press, it's more for the film buff. Hawks is by turns characteristically snide and funny, but there is no depth to these interviews. Serious researchers/academics will find little here to interest them.
