Come and Get It (1936)
This chapter narrates the tangled history of the film Come and Get It. Having firing its original director (Howard Hawks), Samuel Goldwyn legally forced Wyler to finish the picture, which he reluctantly agreed to do. The most significant revelation here is that studio records establish that Wyler's contributions to the film were more extensive than he is usually given credit for by critics and biographers of Hawks. Wyler's problems with Hawks's discovery, Frances Farmer, are also discussed, as well as the film's relationship to its source novel, by Edna Ferber.
