    Y’know, I’d completely forgotten ‘Man’s Favorite Sport’ was Howard Hawks! Man, I need to revisit that one. Wonderful contribution to the HHB, Sebastian.

      thanks for checking out my list! i always loved mans favorite sport. i saw it after bringing up baby so i could see some of the similarities, but still enjoyed it for its own spin on that kind of story. really fun!

    Here’s hoping this comment gets through, Pete! Kept getting kicked out. Am I not furious enough?? ;-)
    So glad you mention “Man’s Favorite Sport” here in particular. I’ve only seen this title but know absolutely nothing about it. If you suggest it then I will have to take a look at it!
    As you note, Hawks’ scope is unequaled. Grand master filmmaker!
    Great write-up!

    Classic line: “For me this film is akin to slipping into a warm jacuzzi.” So true! I’ve not seen MAN’S FAVORITE SPORT or THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD but I love or at least like all the others…I’m not sure I can say that about many other directors. Cool list!
