farber-9939.jpg"One of the joys of moviegoing is worrying over the fact that what is referred to as [Howard] Hawks might be Jules Furthman, that behind the [Jean-Luc] Godard film is the looming shape of Raoul Coutard, and that when people talk about Bogart's 'peculiarly American' brand of scarred, sophisticated cynicism they are really talking about what Ida Lupino, Ward Bond, or even Stepin Fetchit provided in unmistakable scene-stealing moments."

Manny Farber, "The Subverters," from "Negative Space"

(So who does get the credit, Bogart or Lupino? Here they are in "High Sierra.")
