Born in Indiana in 1896, Hawks dabbled in various roles in the film business in his early career. His directorial debut was the 1925 silent feature The Road to Glory; in the Thirties he easily transitioned to the new world of sound pictures.
Some of Hawks’ most notable films at this time, from Scarface to Bringing Up Baby, were unusually made for differing studios.
Howard’s only Oscar nomination was for Sergeant York in 1941. Hawks went on to direct such classics as The Big Sleep (’46) and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (’53). Howard Hawks died in 1977.
