‘Rio Bravo’ was the first in an informal trilogy written by Leigh Brackett and directed by Howard Hawks that included ‘El Dorado’ (1967) and ‘Rio Lobo’ (1970), both starring John Wayne. John Carpenter would later remake ‘Rio Bravo’ as an urban thriller entitled ‘Assault on Precinct 13’ (1976). While Hawks’ original continues to survive as one of the great Westerns of the fifties, an English critic said it best when he wrote: “If I were asked to choose a film that would justify the existence of Hollywood, I think it would be ‘Rio Bravo.’” [TCM]

Recommended Listening: Audio Interview with Howard Hawks

“Hawks speaks quietly and forcefully. He laughs often, interrupts often, listens intently and asks few questions. He is a curious mixture of taciturnity and loquaciousness. He seems to be a strong silent type and yet he talks almost continuously. During lunch we were perversely enchanted as we found ourselves hanging batedly on every scabrous John Wayne anecdote. ‘If I want to have fun at a party,’ said the master over his chef’s salad, ‘I’ll tell the Duke, ‘See that guy over there? He’s a Red!’ Later in the day we asked Hawks for a private interview. He agreed without hesitation. Nancy Reeves scheduled us for the following morning at ten.” —Howard Hawks on film, politics, and childrearing

“I made ‘Rio Bravo’ with John Wayne, it worked out pretty well and we both liked it, so a few years later we decided to make it again. Worked out pretty good that time, too. So now I’m preparing ’Rio Lobo.’ I called up Duke and asked him if he wanted to be in it. Sure, he said, he’d do it with me. I asked him if he wanted me to send the script over. ‘Hell, Howard,’ he said, ‘I’ve already done the goddamned script two times.’” —In Memory: Howard Hawks by Roger Ebert

“Someone will spot this article and think — hey, there’s a great biopic in here — and I’ll be the first to agree. Fascinating times in Hollywood, larger than life stars — an elder man (Hawks) and an upcoming woman writer (Brackett) who would work together on classics like ‘The Big Sleep,’ ‘Rio Bravo’ and more. And enduring friendship in a cut-throat town. Do we have bad guys in this stories — oh yeah, there’s a few up for grabs!” —Leigh Brackett and Howard Hawks

Jules Furthman & Leigh Brackett’s screenplay for ‘Rio Bravo’ [pdf]. (NOTE: For educational purposes only)

“I wrote the best script I have ever written and Howard liked it, the studio liked it, Wayne liked it, and I was delighted. We didn’t make it, because he decided to go back and do ‘Rio Bravo’ over again. It could have been called ‘The Son of Rio Bravo Rides Again.’ I wasn’t happy, but I did the best I could to make it a little different. Amazingly enough, very few people, except film buffs, caught the resemblance. I thought, my god! The critics will clobber us, because we did this before, practically word for word. The scene where Jimmy Caan threw himself in front of the horses we had done in ‘Rio Bravo,’ but it was cut out of the final print because the final print was overlength. I said: ‘Howard, you can’t do that. Warner Brothers owns it.’ He said: ‘All right, I’ll buy the rights back.’ So what can you do?” —Leigh Brackett: Journeyman Plumber

Part of the documentary series ‘The Men Who Made the Movies.’ Directed by film critic Richard Schickel. Narrated by legendary filmmaker Sidney Pollack.

A small comic I did for the NYT Private Lives blog. This is the probably the first comic I’ve done since I was 5 years old and I’m happy I got to do it for something close to my heart. Many thanks to my AD Sarah Williamson at the Times.

Les Dormeurs

Cécile Giovannini is an illustrator living and working in Martigny, Switzerland. Les Dormeurs, which is “The Sleepers” in French, is an introspective series depicting solitary subjects in nighttime landscapes offset by the surreal imagery.

Since I was a child, I have experienced anxiety falling asleep, afraid about this moment when you accept to lose control of your reality. I think a lot of people feel the same…It is a feeling the same as thinking about how big the universe is or fear of the dark. Deep feelings that do not disappear when you grow up.
