A Call to Action: The Films of Raoul Walsh
Breaking into movies as a protégée of D.W. Griffith, Raoul Walsh (1887–1980) would develop into the most robust of two-fisted Hollywood directors. Walsh’s Forties gangster films (High Sierra and White Heat) have always been admired; recently his stock has risen, thanks to a new appreciation for rowdy early talkies like the vaudeville western Wild Girl and the indescribably knockabout comedy Me and My Gal.
