Hawks was in many ways ahead of his time. While not politically feminist or sympathetic to their goals, he popularized the Hawksian woman archetype, which could be considered a prototype of the modern post-feminist movement. At the same time, Hawks was known to make anti-semitic comments, including in front of Jewish actress Lauren Bacall, who kept her Jewish identity a secret from Hawks and who did not call him on his hateful comments, both of which she has said she regrets now.[1] Feminism is a social theory and political movement primarily informed and motivated by the experience of women. ...

Howard Hawks - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (404 words)
Howard Hawks (May 30, 1896 – December 26, 1977) was an American film director, producer and writer of the classic Hollywood era.
Hawks was known for his versatility as a director, filming comedies, dramas, gangster films, sci-fi, pulp noir, and Westerns with equal ease and skill.

Howard Hawks (1027 words)
Indeed, Hawks was one of the few Hollywood directors to employ overlapping sound; as a result, dialogue in many of his films is delivered with the rhythm of machine-gun fire.
Hawks' view of such "masculine" professionalism is similar to the idea of "grace under pressure" explored in fiction by his close friend, Ernest Hemingway.
Hawks' movies would be of minimal interest if their vision were limited to the narrow notions of masculine professionalism offered in the action films.
