Bachelorette showgirl singers Dorothy Shaw and Lorelei Lee are sailing to Paris, courtesy of Lorelei's millionaire boyfriend Gus Esmond, Jr. They're also being shadowed--thanks to Gus Sr.--by private detective Ernie Malone. Lorelei gets embroiled in a contretemps involving Sir Francis "Piggy" Beekman, outspoken Lady Beekman, and a tiara. Dorothy, meanwhile, becomes involved in a running flirtation with the detective. All's well that ends well, but everything plays second fiddle to the snazzy costumes and in-your-face attitudes sported by the showgirls. One of Howard Hawks' biggest commercial hits, this lush, garish, cynical, yet fun-filled fortune-hunter satire is based on a 1949 Broadway musical and has a wisp of a plot, serving merely to tie together the lavish musical numbers

The men who made the movies : interviews with Frank Capra, George Cukor, Howard Hawks, Alfred Hitchcock, Vincente Minnelli, King Vidor, Raoul Walsh, and William A. Wellman by Richard Schickel( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[This book] evolved from the memorable television series that was named by the New York Times as one of the outstanding television programs of 1973. Eight directors were encouraged by Schickel to reminisce about their working lives, which spanned the most intriguing decades of American film. In speaking with them, he found in these men a special quality: 'They felt in their bones the character and quality of a vanished America.' There was something valuable to be learned from them, not merely about the cinema, but about the conduct of life. They would, as Schickel says, be worthy of study even 'if they had been engaged in the manufacture of widgets, let alone something as intrinsically interesting as movies.' Each director created a canon of work that even today sustains critical analysis without sacrificing popular appeal. Moreover, each maintained his artistic integrity while working in an atmosphere generally credited with ruining rather than nurturing talent--Hollywood. The format of these interviews allows the directors to talk about preplanned issues without interruption. And the topics discussed deal with the directors' lives and attitudes rather than with the technical nature of their work; in fact, any questions which seemed too specifically technical were often greeted by them with snorts of contempt. The book is rich in behind-the-scenes stories about such modern classics as It Happened One Night, Dawn Patrol, The Champ, Born Yesterday, Father of the Bride, Shadow of a Doubt, and The Roaring Twenties, as well as in anecdotes about the lives of men who not only 'made the movies' but who made Hollywood the glamour capital of the world."--Dust jacket

Howard Hawks' Rio Bravo( Visual )

17 editions published between 1959 and 2010 in English and German and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the small Texas town of Rio Bravo, law and order is maintained by three unlikely enforcers: hard-boiled sheriff Chance; former quick draw artist Dude, now gone drunk and disheveled; and the crippled, wisecracking Stumpy, who patrols the jail with a shotgun. The arrest and incarceration of Joe Burdette for murder has set these three at odds with his brother, corrupt and wealthy landowner Nathan Burdette. Nathan assembles a force of hired guns to spring Joe, while Chance enlists hotshot gunslinger Colorado. Complications arise in the form of Feathers -- not the usual saloon floozy but a competent professional gambler accustomed to sparring with men -- who has an eye for Chance
