Director: Howard Hawks
Cast: Ann Dvorak, Paul Muni

Country: US
Year: 1932
Duration: 95m

A beautiful new restoration of Howard Hawks’ fast, feisty, darkly funny gangster classic which is also a subversive account of a ruthlessly ambitious punk’s pursuit of the American Dream. In charting the bloody career of boorish but street-smart hoodlum Tony Camonte (Muni, superb), Hawks and screenwriter Ben Hecht drew on the lives (and deaths) of Al Capone and other notorious figures – the Borgias included. - London Film Festival

Dr. Ian Brooks from the University of Nottingham will introduce the film. He teaches in the Department of Culture, Film and Media, where he has taught film noir courses for several years. He is also the editor of 'Howard Hawks: New Perspectives' (2016) which was shortlisted for the Kraszna-Krausz Book Award in the category of Best Moving Image Book.
