Come and Get It
Dir. Howard Hawks. 1936, 99 mins. 35mm. With Edward Arnold, Joel McCrea, Frances Farmer. In this multigenerational Edna Farber saga, an ambitious lumberjack abandons his saloon girl lover, Lota, so that he can marry into wealth, but years later becomes infatuated with his now-deceased former girlfriend’s daughter. Farmer, in a dual role here, was called by Hawks “the greatest actress I have ever worked with.”
