Howard Hawks (18961977) was one of the most versatile directors of UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfHollywood. Starting out in silent films as an assistant director and other production jobs, he soon moved up to director, and was one of Hollywood's top directors for the next several decades. Among the genres he handled successfully were gangster films, romantic comedies, screwball comedies, westerns, detective movies, and even musicals. Unlike other directors at the time, he wasn't tied to one particular studio. Also, though he worked with a number of well-regarded writers on his films (among them Ben Hecht and Creator/WilliamFaulkner), he was also known for changing the script as he was shooting it, with a number of examples of ThrowItIn in each of his films. He also was legendary for the number of tall tales he told about himself. Though he directed a number of hits throughout his career, he fell out of favor with critics in the '50s, but was VindicatedByHistory, thanks to [[UsefulNotes/TheAuteurTheory "auteur"]] critics like Creator/FrancoisTruffaut who helped restore his reputation. Later generation of directors would cite him as a major director, second only to Creator/JohnFord, citing his versatility in moving from genres with the likes of Creator/JohnCarpenter, Creator/MartinScorsese, Creator/RobertAltman, Creator/QuentinTarantino, Creator/WesAnderson, Creator/GreggAraki and Creator/JimJarmusch testifying to his influence on their work.

* ConsummateProfessional : He was himself this and his films celebrate characters who are this in their chosen field. Film/RioBravo is about JohnWayne worrying that DeanMartin is undergoing BadassDecay while Ricky Nelson is the young plucky rookie who convinces the professionals that he's so good, "he doesn't need to prove it!" Film/HisGirlFriday is about DaChief Walter Burns (Creator/CaryGrant) manipulating [[WorkingWithTheEx his ex]] Rosalind Russell back into his life, not only because he loves her but because he values her work as a journalist.

* MagnumOpusDissonance : The films Hawks tended to be associated in his later years were ''Film/RioBravo'', ''Film/HisGirlFriday'' or ''Film/ToHaveAndHaveNot'' and he was seen as a director of TheWestern and the ScrewballComedy. His own favorite was the first ''Scarface'', a classic gangster film for sure, but an atypical work compared to his later films. He stated that it was a movie he had complete freedom to achieve what he wanted.



* TrueCompanions : His films were celebrations of this.
* VitriolicBestBuds : His favorite kind of friendship.
