Begley, Varun.
""One Right Guy to Another": Howard Hawks and Auteur Theory Revisited." Camera Obscura, Jan2007, Vol. 22 Issue 64, p43-75, 34p
UC users only
The article focuses on the relation between auteur theory and the motion pictures by filmmaker Howard Hawks. The mythologies of gender, sexuality and desire in the films are discussed. It mentions that such films depict homoeroticism and distrust of heterosexuality. It notes that the films use a process of sexual demystification to achieve peculiar electricity. The author cites "The Big Sleep" and "Red River" as the two films that he have chosen to outline a gendered metanarrative.

"It may be American movies' closest equivalent to Restoration Comedy". Kinema; Fall2009, Issue 32, p15-38, 29p
UC users only
The article offers the author's insight concerning the accuracy of Pauline Kael's assertion of the screwball comedy film "Bringing Up Baby." He cites that Kael's comparison is flawed in its assumptions that genres can contain such diverse works as they denote and her idea that genres can be paralleled with each other is problematic. The author examines several restoration comedies to identify whether the film can be considered as the American movie closest to such restoration comedy genre.

"The writer examines the role of incidental and diegetic musics in Howard Hawks's film Rio Bravo (1959) in the film's exploration of masculinity and its manifestations. At issue centrally in the film is the relationship between Rio Bravo's sheriff, John T. Chance (played by John Wayne), and the constellation of men who surround him. As the various zones of masculine and feminine hegemony in Rio Bravo attract and repel one another, a revised and revitalized mosaic of gender identities is created. The use of music in the film is prominent, and the distinction between exegetical or incidental music and music with a plot-specific, dramatic purpose is blurred. The writer goes on to discuss how a trio of songs presented in the film serve, both exegetically and diegetically, to problematize the film's constructions of gender and its articulation of alternative domestic economies."
