Rio Bravo , for example, contains a small group of flawed individuals who earn their redemption through group effort and the rejection of individual self-reliance. The rejection of given Christian names and the exclusive use of nicknames Chance, Dude, Colorado, Stumpy by this small band of misfits and underdogs exemplifies a necessary process of collective self-invention into an effective and cohesively self-contained force for good.
For example, Hatari! After some typically Hawksian slapstick humour at her expense, she does.
She plays an integral part in the operation of the Arctic base. Lucy is a sexless housewife whose one attempt to remake herself by dying her hair blonde is a domestic catastrophe. Hawks created a remarkably consistent popular body of work which promised freedom from constraints posed by organised religion, traditional family structures, and the vicissitudes of history and politics, or even nationalistic myth-making.

The 9 Gangster Movies You Shouldn't Miss - MTV
A classic example of the "New Hollywood" realism and anti-establishment feeling that produced some of best movies of the sixties and seventies. Dillinger Michael Mann is hardly the first director to take on the Dillinger myth. This B movie borrows heavily from Bonnie and Clyde and suffers from poor production values, but great performances from Warren Oates , Harry Dean Stanton , and Richard Dreyfuss as Babyface Nelson make it a low-budget classic. Miller's Crossing The Coen brothers' spin on the gangster picture pays homage to the tough-talking gunsels and molls of the classics, with a convoluted drama loosely based on Dashiell Hammett's Red Harvest.
Gabriel Byrne plays the right hand man to Albert Finney 's mob boss as they face off against a rival gang. Loyalty, betrayal, and an obsession with fedoras, done in the inimitable Coens style.
Bugsy With a powerhouse cast including Harvey Keitel , Ben Kingsley , and Annette Bening , this is a stylish tale of money and violence. Bonus: Bugsy Malone For a truly bizarre antidote to all the murder, try this kids' musical, which transforms the usual roles heavy, fixer, moll and gives them The Tommy guns shoot pies, the mobs fight over smuggled sarsaparilla, and little kids in tiny fedoras ride around in model Model Ts. Scarface Directed by Howard Hawks and produced by Howard Hughes , this adaptation of the life of Al Capone was stopped by the censors, until the subtitle Shame of the Nation was added and the ending was changed to avoid glorifying gangsters.
The Petrified Forest Humphrey Bogart and Bette Davis star in this story of a gang that takes over an Arizona diner and holds the occupants hostage. White Heat Jimmy Cagney plays a ruthless gang leader with an unhealthy mother fixation in this classic. Dillinger Michael Mann is hardly the first director to take on the Dillinger myth.
