Curtiz embarked on the most successful portion of his career as his cinematic style merged with the rapid-paced Warner studio technique. His relentless attention to detail includedresearching the nuances of his adopted country asthey might be applied to each of his film assignments. Screenwriters such as Casey Robinson and Robert Buckner questioned his ability to maintain story continuity, but no one could argue with his ability to make a successful picture. He was nominated as Best Director for Four Daughters,which rocketed John Garfield to stardom, and also for Angels with Dirty Faces, starring James Cagney.He closed out the year by directing Dodge City, a sprawling Technicolor Western starring Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havillandthat would be one of the top-ten Hollywood moneymakers in 1939. Curtiz and Bess settled into a comfortable routine on the Canoga Ranch; Kitty attended CCNY as the Warners launched a campaign to rally the country against the specter of Nazism in Europe.
