Howard Hawks - Storyteller by Gerald Mast


Trade paperback in very good condition.   Some light shelf wear to cover.  Inside is excellent. 

For most of Hawks's career (1925-70), film writers regarded him as a good storyteller and came to regard him as a major director and analyzed his work accordingly. Mast contends that Hawks has been widely misanalyzed. He illustrates his theses by a detailed study of nine films from Scarface to Red River. He emphasizes the importance of the nonverbal subtexts of Hawk's canon: his use of gestures, objects and framing.
